02.01.14Netflix Michael Bay attempting a Coen-esque tale of idiot kidnappers in over their heads. It was a little interesting to see what a Michael Bay movie was like without the CG or action sequences for him to hide behind. Not really successful. Lots of sweat going on. An absolute shit ton of needless narration. Needless slow-mo. And the overall tone is kind of confusing to me... I immediately looked up what was true and what was invented since the movie kept re-iterating that it was a true story blah blah blah. So people really died and were really dismembered and stuff. It seems like the families or whatever would be pretty peeved that their tragedy was turned into this weird macho jokey trying-to-be-quirk thing with the bloody Kiss the Cook apron and Marky Mark in his Calvin Kleins. I don't know... I mean I can see why some producer thought it was ripe territory... maybe Bay just didn't have the finesse to pull it off tactfully? Who knows. Didn't love it.
