A shiftless loser of a film – about shiftless losers! The directorial debut of Training Day writer David Ayer is roughly as incompetent and unwatchable as its characters: a Gulf War vet (Christian Bale) with a dream of becoming law enforcement (in between bouts of getting high/drunk) and his friend (Six Feet Under’s Freddy Rodriguez) who is sponging off his own successful girlfriend (Desperate Housewives’ Eva Longoria). Bad performances abound amongst the talented cast, led by the usually reliable Bale, whose Latino accent is intermittent at best and practically non-existent at worst (it pops up largely when the character is high/drunk)! Bad, bad, bad movie…
