I wasn’t expecting much out of this movie. In fact I thought it had limitlessly bad written all over it. Surprisingly it’s a pretty decent movie.
Bradley Cooper is certainly a solid actor and gives a fine performance. In fact he’s ideal for this roll. And of course Robert De Niro is his usual fantastic self and has much more than just a bit roll that I was expecting.
It was really the story that I thought had lameness written all over it. That’s where I was most surprised. The plot and pacing move along really well and stays grounded.
The real question is: should you watch this movie in the theater or wait for the DVD? I would lean towards watching this on DVD in a few months. There’s nothing so fantastic about it that you won’t miss anything watching it at home.
