Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): The film looks like it was cobbled together from better screenplays.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Showcase for Lou Gossett could be a standout in this otherwise starless season of releases.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): It does not look amazing nor terrible, but it does not seem that interesting either.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): There’s nothing memorable or enticing about this trailer.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): With street violence constantly in the news now this is probably not going to be much of a success.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): It might prove an interesting heist movie, but I’m not sure I want to spend time with the people in the trailer.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): The desire to create schlock for schlock’s sake often causes tons of these types of movies, which no one really needs or wants.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): There was no previous film – the 2 seems to be to entice audiences into thinking this garbage is a follow-up to some major success.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): Oh this looks bad and not funny at all.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): It’s an interesting concept, but the trailer doesn’t sell it very well.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Looks like a heartless horror film.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): The trailer leaves me unimpressed, but the early reviews make it sound decent, so it might be worth seeing.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): A novel idea, but a dull trailer.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Schizophrenia is a difficult subject for a film but Charlie Plummer and Taylor Russell are too good for it to be a total failure.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): I am not sure that the film will succeed as even the trailer appears to be trying too hard, but it may be an original take on mental illness.
