Incredible piece of movie making featuring a fantastic cast and an endearing true story. Seeing Carell thrown totally out of his comfort zone and in his first real serious role is worth seeing the movie alone. John du Pont is clearly a disturbed, uneasy character and Carell makes the transition from comedy to this almost predator like character perfectly. Ruffalo is fantastic and I was never a huge fan of Tatum either but he takes this role and runs (or wrestles) with it. Brilliant stuff.

Very much a slow burner, that doesn't speed up. Based in a true story, its acted very well, but it's so slow that it becomes annoying and frustrating to watch, desperate for something exciting to happen, it just doesn't come.
Hard to tell whether the movie is good or not, as they sounds makes it impossible to hear what they're saying. Slow.
