"Watched this in a cinema full of people who, judging by their silence and the collective shrugs and sniggers when it ended, all thought it was just as big a waste of time as I did. "

"The Cub Swanson-y lead was the least interesting and charismatic character in the entire film, so that was weird. The editing was kinda muddy at times -- visually throughout, and the music in the epilogue was loud in the mix to the point of distraction. The emotional stuff waa all pretty played out already, and surely no one cares about the side characters. That being said, it was nice to look at and presented a pretty interesting future. Watched it with my mom on vacation and enjoyed it. "

"The leads are both astonishingly bad, but even if the rest of the cast were as good as Downey Jr. is here it would've still been a horrible adaptation and just a plain bad movie. "

"Went into it blind. Had a hard time enjoying the first hour or so. Without knowing anything about Billy Moore, there's little to latch onto -- the movie just kinda glosses over who he is. The highlight for me was the subtly realistic evolution of Moore as a fighter -- getting smashed by more refined strikers with more control and a bigger arsenal of maneuvers at first, then developing from one-dimensional boxer into adept muay thai practitioner. Great locations and Dogma-like shots, too."

"Best movie I've gone into blind in the cinema for so far. Carnivalesque, yet grounded in sad, frustrating reality. Funny, absurd, realistic, and well performed."

"Coupla eyerolls here and there, and Kylo Ren seriously generates nothing but go-away heat, but I did have a good time watching it (with the biggest OG SW fan in the galaxy). The multiple stories happening led to no chemistry being developed by any key characters outside of Rey and Kylo, so going into the next one I can't imagine anyone caring much about anyone aside from C3PO and Chewbacca, but maybe they'll wind up pulling a space rabbit out of their elaborate and impractical theater hats."

"My PSI for this is nuts. It's basically saying this ought to be my favorite film of all time. I don't expect it to be, though it was a very faithful (except everyone being far too attractive) and well realized adaptation of the book. Odd that they mostly cut Kano out of the story, since he was the one topic they always returned to in the book and his fate set things in motion, but for a low-impact 2-hour film, it has no wasted motion. Hideko really inhabits Yukiko scarily well."

"Watched this in the cinema with little idea of what to expect. The one thing I thought I knew was that I'd be seeing a Coen movie, so that not being the case was a surprise. Then when I thought I knew what type of film I was watching, everyone in the film disappeared. Very cool twist -- shame almost anyone who watches this will be going in knowing it. The 'party' near the end of the film was great -- gave me chills -- but all in all I would've liked a bit more to happen. "
