Review: (#1) The interesting elements are the shapes that make up the middle portion. The city skyline is fairly rote and the color usage is unimpressive. Johnny Depp or Forest Whitaker fans will know this has them in it, but they might not 100% understand the point of the movie. (#2) This design has a similar confusing aspect to it because of the lack of plot definition, but it’s a lot more interesting in its layout and color schemes and that’s crucial to drawing the viewer’s attention.

Trailer Rating: C-

Review: This film has been languishing for a couple of years now and this is what the audience gets for their patience? It’s no wonder the film has struggled to find release and it’s not because of Depp’s legal/marital/abuse woes.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
