Nonsense - waste of time.
7 October 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Little to say that hasn't been said but wanted to comment as this film is just so disappointing. It failed for me (and those viewing with me) at every level ... far too slow in many scenes nearly sent me to sleep ... metaphysically absurd (Spirited Away from Ghibli was much more interesting)... I do like Affleck but will someone please remind him that this medium is audio-visual, we need to be able to hear what is said. I'm tired of him mumbling (about the only time is almost made sense was in Manchester by the Sea). If you like good films then avoid this one, it has virtually nothing to redeem it.
