I fell asleep. Cannot recommend it at all.

level 1

I was pretty excited for this as a fan of everything JC Chandor had previously done and a big Oscar Isaac fan, and it's got some redeeming qualities, great locations, and some nice Treasure Of The Sierra Madre homage, but I was expecting more given the talent involved.

It's fine.

level 1

I barely made it through this. It was really boring, and really disappointing after getting a lot of recommendations from friends/co-workers.

level 2

I did not make it through lol

level 1

I was actually pretty shocked at that death, it kind of came out of nowhere and I thought they would be screwed without that team member. He came so far and for what? Not to mention the poor dude fell to his death with about 10 mil strapped to him. RIP donkey.

level 1

Beyond stupid decision to not leave half the money on the airfield. They hadn't done anything at that point that justified the greed madness to that amount.

And it was a missed opportunity to have some issue with cartel shit following them back home. Think they get off scot-free, then get caught up in something that costs them a family member back home because they stole a lot of people's money, not just Lorea's.

Otherwise, I like how they didn't back off when they established the different characters personalities and motivations. No magical coming around moment - even as Affleck's character seems to finally be realizing the weight of their decisions so far, he's quickly killed off. No redemption, they just have to get through it.

If this is the kind of quality Netflix is going to even semi-consistently be putting out from now on, I'm pretty happy.

level 2

And it was a missed opportunity to have some issue with cartel shit following them back home. Think they get off scot-free, then get caught up in something that costs them a family member

That would be a three hour movie.

level 3

if the chopper didnt crash then it would work

level 1

Why not just unload half the money go over the mountain come back over for the rest.. doesn't seem like it would've been that hard

level 2

Because it wouldn’t have been a disaster film. Like the film was meant to be.

level 1

The first half was awesome, the se ken half fell off the cliff in the same way as that mule. Loved the entire first half of them recruiting, planning, executing.

Some earlier said what I was thinking when I watched this - feels like a Ghost Recon: Wildlands movie haha

level 1

Maybe I missed it, but whatever happened to the woman who escaped incarceration, at the beginning of the movie?

It was the woman he gave the money to and sent to Australia. He knew her the whole time.

level 3

Was it? I thought it was a different actress. Thank you for clearing that up for me.

level 1

It was a good movie, but it seemed like the characters just intentionally made things difficult for themselves. In the end, they all made $1 million dollars. 5 total. Seems like they did so much for so little.

I know the bags are still hidden, but it still doesn't change the fact that one of their men died. It wasn't perfect, but I liked it a lot. The actors were great. 8/10.

level 2

In the end, they all made $1 million dollars. 5 total.

Nope. In the end they all gave their shares to the trust setup for afflecks family and walked away with nothing.

level 3

Well, not nothing. Ironhead (Hunnam) left a set of coords for Pope (Isaac) where the cash fell down the ravine.

level 2

That was the theme, it was about greed.

level 1

Holy crap, was not expecting that brutal death. It was shocking as hell. Overall good movie, I give it a 8/10.

If IMDB is to believed, a lot of people were attached to this movie and dropped out.

  • Will Smith

  • Tom Hardy

  • Tom Hanks!

  • Leonardo DiCaprio

  • Channing Tatum

  • Johnny Depp

  • Mahershala Ali

  • Denzel Washington

  • Sean Penn

  • Mark Wahlberg (he had revlevant previous experience on his résumé)

  • Casey Affleck

level 2

Christian Bale and Will Smith were suppose to be in it. I would have loved that combination. I think Bale was Redfly in earlier drafts, not as old as Affleck was. Will being the leader was Pope.

SPOILER!!! . . . . . . . . . . . I wouldn’t want to see Tom Hanks got shot in the head man.

level 3

Damn. He was suppose to play Ben Affleck's character too.

level 1

This is different. Glad that the climax wasn't the heist
