It’s not as bad as Revolver, but it’s not as good as Lucky Number Slevin. This is another gangster movie with pretensions and a twist you’ll spot from the first few minutes. However, the hillbilly assassinsn are mildly amusing and it manages to get a performance from Ben Affleck that doesn’t make you want to slap him- something I previously thought only Kevin Smith could do (see Dogma and Chasing Amy).
