    Loved the structure of the film, the comedy was great, and that Merc was a beaut.

    ★★★★½

    This really surprised me. The balance between humour and an interesting and well-structured narrative was really great. Neither are sacrificed for the other.

    I haven't laughed as much as I did during this film in a while, and there were even moments when I was struggling to see the film through tears of laughter. All the performances were top-notch, but Steve Buscemi is definitely the star of the show, and without a doubt carries the film from a comedy standpoint as well.

    An amazing premise, but a sadly not as good execution.

    From the wooden characters, to the absurdly loud sound design (resulting in inaudible dialogue), Christopher Nolan's latest film was disappointing and didn't live up to my expectations.

    With that said, the fight scenes are beautifully choreographed and the practical effects are great. As with all of Nolan's recent films, this film is a technical marvel and is gorgeous to look at.

    I want to like this film and I really do hope that it grows on me after a rewatch because it has some very original ideas and concepts.

    A brilliantly made film. The attention to detail is excellent, and everything just feels so real and raw. The structure of the film is also really really great and puts you in the mind of a poor, ill man.

    Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Coleman are beyond perfect in this film. Their performances are so genuine, especially Olivia Coleman. Her little mannerisms just make it impossible for me to believe that she was actually acting.

    Throughout the whole film, I teared up many times, but by the end, when the credits rolled, I sat there and just wept. Great film.
