From the trailers, this looked like it was going to be the Hillbilly version of Gangster Squad, (which will probably be edited profusely sadly due to the tragic shootings in Colorado. It’s even been exiled to the month of January) but I figured I’d give it a try. Holy shminoly was this a good one. Shia LeBouf showed he could leave his transformer/Indiana jones days behind and was actually a really interesting character. Tom Hardy was the bad ass man of few words who just wouldn’t die. Guy Pearce did what he does best: dastardly and stuffy. The thing that stuck out was the fact that Gary Oldman is literally in the movie for like 10 minutes but he stole the scene every time he was on. More over, it was a visceral and violent film. People got cut and shot in this movie. It actually utilized the R rating instead overkill or oh that’s too racy. Good time, check it out.
