"This is a film that should work - the story itself has a horrible crime at its core that should stir some emotion in a viewer, the performances in the film are all good and there is an interesting dynamic to explore. Yet, despite these elements, there is a strong feeling of detachment to the characters that prevents one from ever really engaging with the story. It is difficult to connect with the central protagonist at all, despite a good performance from Hill, as the film offers very little insight into his character. Furthermore, even without any knowledge of the crime itself, the central mystery of whether Franco's character is guilty or not is never really in doubt to a viewer. Strangely uninvolving"

"I was pretty hyped to see the duo on a more 'serious' movie, and I wasn't disappointed. They both have above decent performances and prove they're not just your funny guys. The movie itself feels a little bit forced at times and I don't really liked how it developed and ended, but since it's based on a true story there isn't really someone to blame. Overall it's an interesting movie to watch, especially if you're a fan of James Franco and Jonah Hill."

"This movie is already hard to take serious because Jonah Hill is making a serious character but to my surprise the 1st act is quite solid. It's a shame that once you enter the 2nd act the movie just stumbles on himself and the 3rd act is completely non-sense."

"Man, what should I tell you? Despite what other people argue here I really doubted this man was guilty of anything. Sometimes it felt uncomfortable the exchange the two main characters had through the movie, I was almost sure one of them will jump and attack the other. I'm really pleased with this movie, and was cool to see Jonah Hill in other thing than doing comedies, the guy isn't Channing Tatum but is one of those Hollywood top-payed actors, how about that, ha!"

James Franco delivers a good performance but the story is disconnected and doesn't explain the evolution of Hill's character. The problem is the script and the directing. You don't get to understand where the movie is leading to or why and how are the troubles of Michael Finkel.

**About a man who has nothing to lose and a man who can't afford another failure!**

It was based on the book of the same name, which was originally inspired by the real events. But there's a striking resemblance between this and the Truman Capote story. About a man who is serving in prison for sl More
