This movie was just bad, like bad for any director not just one who is critically acclaimed and has a history of making some flawed pictures. This was just bad for anyone. The characters--especially Blake Lively--were just unbearable. Besides being the stereotypes of every role they played, the story is all over the place, the violence and heavy doses of mayhem seem completely overused just to give the film its full R-rating. Stone should just stick to his 'political' pictures.
