The 7th directorial effort by George Clooney is a beautiful, boring, and predictable story that skips the exciting parts, instead focusing on dread, misery and fading hope in the light of humanity. It is the type of film designed to be called brave, but is more an exercise of muscles that are best left unflexed.
“Overall, it’s a decent enough movie for a one time through, made better with the most screen time I have seen anyone give to Williamson in years.”
