Very poorly written
13 March 2016 | by mnoble1-2See all my reviews

The characters are supposed to astute businessmen, but their actions are, at best, moronic. They act as if they are dimwitted idiots.

True, they are out of their normal environment, but even that doesn't account for their ridiculous (re)actions.

Add to that the contrived situations that occur and this meager attempt is totally unbelievable.

If it is supposed to comedic - it fails. If it is supposed to be horrific - it fails. If it is supposed to be dramatic - it fails. If it is supposed to be a combination - it fails.

More suited to a Three Stooges movie.

Now imagine if these men were uneducated, bungling criminals that inadvertently stole money from a crime syndicate and were on the run in Scotland. They could act stupid. They could get away with doing ridiculous things. Is the syndicate chasing them? Much more plausible to the idiotic actions. Still wouldn't excuse the the obviously contrived and unbelievable scenes, though.

1. Unbelievable situations. 2. Ridiculous characterization. 3. Boring
