Hail, Caesar! (Ethan Coen and Joel Coen)
Starring: Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Alison Pill, Jack Huston, Agyness Deyn
My thoughts on this film: I guess, after all the publicity surrounding this movie, I went in expecting a lot more.
The main story was good, and there was so much they could have done with it, but it felt like they did not care much for the final result. They just wanted to get it over and done with.
The overall result was a strung together series of little set pieces that did not hang together as a whole.
Even the cast - made up of the best actors and actresses in the business - seemed tired and not doing their best.
I have seen worse, but, as I wrote at the beginning, I was expecting a lot more from the Coen brothers!
