My wife ambushed me Friday and took me to the movies. and we saw this. We both enjoyed it very much. Anyone else see it yet?

You will see SJW crap within it eventually, but it isn't preaching and I'm not even certain it was necessarily even really there. Very well made movie. Good music. Good story. Well cast and acted in my opinion.

I dont think Norton gets involved with a movie unless he thinks it will be good.
He was great in The Score.

I think the credits said he wrote and directed it. I'm guessing he probably had more to do with making it than previously. It moved along well but still took it's time. Well crafted.

I saw it and enjoyed it. It was well put together. There where some race, power and haves vs. have nots in it, but it didn't detract at all.

Great team of actors, I liked them all in this movie.

I thought the story was terrible. It went nowhere.

SPOILERS......



Within the first two minutes of meeting the detective team the wife and I both called the small "twist" of the one bad guy. Very cliche.

Norton's character identifies the killer in that first town hall meeting where he recognizes the voice so that went nowhere and was no mystery. The whole meat of the story with the slums and what they were doing to them and why went nowhere and has nothing to do with the murder of Frank.

It's a shame because there were some good characters and it was filmed well and acted well, it was just flat on story.
