Review: A dizzying design that highlights the star without connecting the dots to who he’s playing, at least not without forcing them to read the poster entire, which no one passing by is likely to stop and do.

Review: An almost embarrassing mix of sloppy theatrics and biopic theatrics that suggest a shortcoming in terms of narrative excellence. The performances don’t look particularly great, but looks can be deceiving.
In concept, this should be the perfect vehicle for Don Cheadle to return to the Oscars, but releasing in April isn’t going to win it points and I suspect it will be forgotten by the time the Oscars pick their choices.
