From IMDb: “An Army medic suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder becomes a serial bank robber after an addiction to drugs puts him in debt.”

Poster Rating: C (6) / C

Review: (#1-#6) This sextet of designs uses the cherry red coloring to feel edgy, but they are all rather uninteresting taken separately and together.

(#7) More of the same is not always better, especially when the prior designs were so lifeless.

Trailer Rating: C- / C

Review: (#1) Teasing the audience without any narrative tension or creative energy makes it difficult to approach a film like this with much anticipation. Trailers should most certainly do better at that than this one does.

(#2) Is this film intended to be some kind of time-twisting narrative with a clairvoyant at the lead or just a film about some supposed-to-be lovable schmuck trying to find a way to survive and find love in the world? Either film isn’t well presented or very convincing with this trailer.

Oscar Prospects:

Tom Holland hasn’t been in the Oscar conversation since The Impossible, but there is some building around this film. It’s supposed to release just before the Oscar deadline, but it’s entering the race far too late to be a capable player.
