Its not a standard Hollywood action film and should not be viewed with that mindset...if you watch the movie with some attention you will be rewarded.
The demo disk for my Blu-ray player is cinematically beautiful also. That doesn't make it a great movie.

Thanks for the primer on how to properly enjoy "cinema" but I am very open-minded when viewing and there hasn't been a movie made that I was unable to comprehend.

While the TRL may have had a great cast, the casting for the movie was awful. What I said in my previous post was that the TRL was a great sleep inducer. For 98% of the population it will outperform Ambien. It's a movie only a film student could love and even one of those, speaking honestly, would admit to its shortcomings.
Remember this, you are lucky to have lived during the golden age of beer (except Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams).
