College is really making me fall behind on this. But I'll try to watch it.

I have a confession: I didn't make it through the whole thing.

Shinzon's a force of nature in this, absolutely, but yeah, the film's a complete mess.

I admired Hardy for trying, but I can't really abide projects that kind of glorify violent figures, or biographies that fail to scratch the surface on their subjects. It was like Kubrick meets Chopper, another biopic of a prisoner with a compelling star performance and a mess around him.

Interesting that the director is now working on that Hollywood thriller Drive.

I stopped watching halfway through, and it wasn't because anything offended me. I just found myself asking the character (and probably out loud), "I'm sorry, but why exactly am I supposed to be interested in you or your situation?"

I didn't even want to wait to find out more about him, to see if there was anything redeeming about him. Not to say that I can't watch a movie or read a book about someone completely unsympathetic, but this movie gave me nothing.

I found Hardy's characterization to be the most interesting thing about the movie; Almost as if the plot (or lack thereof) was secondary to watching him play the role of Bronson.. to the point that when I heard he was going to be in Inception, I was fucking stoked

oh wait.. I reread what you wrote and see what you actually meant... I agree. But not necessarily in a bad way
