    The only thing holding this movie up is the performances with the shocking worst being Norton with him slipping in and out of his unneeded tick. The story is a mess with characters randomly being dropped or not even being needed in the story as well as plotlines going nowhere. All of this leaves one to believe the subject matter was at this time just above Norton's talents.

    This was a wonderful adaptation of the book. Changing the time period to the ‘50s was brilliant. Edward Norton deserves an Oscar for his performance.

    Needs editing down as too much filler. Some characters not well established. The 1950's aspect came across a little hokey.

    While this dip into the hardboiled detective genre from Edward Norton wasn't a total win, I actually found this story interesting enough and reminded me I still need to read The Power Broker one of these days. For a 140min plus film I found the pacing just fine, although I will admit I am glad I saw this in a theater as I am not sure it would have held my attention in the same way with all the distractions sometimes found at home. This one landed on the border of the 3*/3.5* for me in the end. *2019 Theater #47 *AMC A-List #74
