American Heist (2014)
« on: November 18, 2016, 09:29:07 pm »

American Heist is one of the worst movies I've seen in the past 5 years. This is truly an epic fail all around. What the f*ck happened to Adrien Brody's career? He was laughably bad. Sure, he was playing against type, but the manner in which is does just draws attention to the fact that he is just using cliches of what he thinks a "thug" is in real life by relying on stereotypes from other films to inform his acting choices. It got to be painful watching him ham it up and spit out lines like "bro" this and "bro" that. I expect more from an Oscar winner. But the biggest crime here is the awful writing and directing. Beyond the stupid dialogue, it's the "plot" of the entire film. Talk about shortsightedness. The writer clearly failed on all fronts because things start and stop for no other reason in that he doesn't know how to write and certainly doesn't know what the word 'resolution' means. The ending was truly awful. How and why does he end it like that? Did they run out of film and not have any left to shoot scenes? What the f*ck. Only saving grace was Jordana Brewster, who was great as eye candy. Nothing against her acting. I like her. But she had zero to work with here. Skip this piece of sh*t movie at all cost. Biggest shock was that Hayden Christensen was the "best" actor in the film. What does that tell ya?

I'd never even heard of this before.

That trailer looks and sounds as awful as you describe.
