Esta fue una película realmente divertida con una trama inteligente y bien escrita. Nick Cage y Pedro Pascal tienen una gran química y ofrecen actuaciones fantásticas. Si quieres pasar un buen rato y unas buenas risas, mira esta película. Es lamentable que no le fue mejor en la taquilla, pero eso dice más sobre el sentido del humor de la audiencia cinematográfica estadounidense que sobre esta película. Con suerte, las excelentes críticas que está recibiendo esta película generarán la apreciación

Way way way way wAaaaaaaaay better than myself or my husband expected. I had medium hopes for this movie as the trailer looked pretty good. We both were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed this. It's very meta, and very aware of it, poking fun and using that self deprication as part of the plot line, making it ridiculous yet awesome at the same time. If you enjoy Nick Cage and ridiculous but endearing flicks, give this movie a whirl.

This movie is absolutely terrible. I think I've lost faith in rotten tomatoes. It's like it wants to be a modern day Big Lebowski but the writers didn't really understand what it takes to make such a movie. I rented this movie with Google play credit I earned doing Google surveys and would have rather used the credit for an in-app purchase for Alpine Legends.
