Okay, sorry, going against the grain on this one. The film was well done and well acted, which the Academy Awards recognized. But it was not all that great. While the acting was good, no way in my mind was it better or even close to that of American Hustle.
I like Matthew McConaughey as an actor and in “True Detectives” he was fantastic, but there was nothing spectacular in this film. The movie drags as the story develops and nothing about it amazed me.
Going to have to give this one two cigars out of five.
