What the Critics say
Neil Smith For all its delicious moments, though, you can't help feeling there are a couple of ingredients missing from this frustratingly insubstantial confection.
Jason Anderson While there are moments of grace, the film is doomed by the Hong Kong auteur's lazy reliance on old tropes (those slow-mo reveries have never seemed so pointless) and tin ear for the language, especially when it's delivered in the crappy Southern accents put on by Jones' co-stars, Rachel Weisz and Natalie Portman.
Tomatometer A mixed bag of dedicated performers working with thin material.
