The biggest mistake you can make is to go to the cinema expecting to enjoy this movie.

Robert Pattinson who is best known for playing Edward Cullen in the film adaptations of the Twilight novels, is the star of this movie and may i add he acted like he was still on the set of a Twilight movie.

This movie is based on a book of the same name by Don DeLillo, David Cronenberg who directed and also co-produced this movie just lifted the words from the book and delivered a non-cinematic film that drags.

If you decide to rate this film by its colour or cinematography it will fall in the range of a 6/10 due to the fact that it was mostly shot in what seemed like a tight corner (the limo of Eric Parker), and the director made sure you don't feel claustrophobic.

The main flaw in this picture will be the dialogue it just involved basically two people at a time, Eric Parker (Robert Pattinson) and the people who come to have sex with him or come to give him a report. The other thing about the dialogue was how vague it was, you must be ready to decipher abstract statements

The movie was shot 90% of the time in the Limo of Packer (Pattinson), and the plot was like that of the book: Billionaire Eric Packer (Pattinson) rides slowly across Manhattan in his limousine that he uses as his office while on his way to his preferred barber, we are taking through his day, where he receives reports, have sex, get a doctor visit and witness a protest going on in the streets all this in his Limo.

He later loses all his cash and his life just spirals down.

Pattinson’s played a blank character from the beginning of this film till the end, maybe that was what he was told to do, but when you act with no emotions and you are sure you are not playing a vampire then I wonder how you want the audience to be moved by the character.

Pattinson in 2010 was named one of TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People in The World, and also in the same year Forbes ranked him as one of the most powerful celebrities in the world, when you pack such recommendations it only makes you get more money for starring in movies not recommendation for making good ones.

I regretted the time I spent watching this movie.
