Newt's movie review

Cuba really irritated me in this one. He seemed like a little kid just trying to please everyone and it made his delivery ridiculous. And speaking of ridiculous: the movie wasn't great to begin with, but the dialogue near the end was just silly. It felt like the climax had been rewritten by some amateur under serious time constraints like, say, an hour. Really awful.

The premise was good, it looked like a very expensive movie to make, and Spacey was OK, but your two hours are better spent elsewhere.
