So, the reason I was really interested in this was the cast. I really like James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson, and Vincent Cassel separately, but I didn’t see in my brain how the three of them would all fit in the same movie. And in a way, I was right, but I also think that was maybe the point? I’m completely guessing, but the three of them never fit together perfectly, which worked for the characters, in my opinion. The movie itself staggers along as blindly as its main character, but in a way, that also worked. But, what I can say with complete confidence is that the stylization of this is really cool. It looks great. The plot is also really interesting. There was just one too many twists and turns for me. So, overall, director Danny Boyle had me kind of scratching my head. Which is maybe what he intended? So, maybe I’m actually complimenting him and calling him a genius.
