Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
I liked it. I think the film has a clever script with some really nice twists and turns. The action scenes are particularly impressive and there are several noteworthy acting performances.  Ben Affleck does a great job portraying this complicated character with nuance and heart – never veering into offensive or stereotypical territory. J.K. Simmons and Cynthia Addai-Robinson are also great as the federal agents hot on his trail, both of them have some key moments to shine. Anna Kendrick’s role is a lot smaller than the trailer indicates, which is one unpleasant surprise. Loved the ending of this movie.

Final Grade: B+
