I saw this at an advanced screeing on 11-07-12 and honestly, I don't get what the big deal about this movie is. It has forced and cliche characters that have nothing interesting going on. It has a bad script with some really weak "funny" lines. The violence is well shot but is forced. They wanted to make a violent movie. so they said lets have Brad Pitt shot someone like 10 times in a car! it's dumb. The movie also takes it self to seriously which I really didn't like. But the peformances were fantastic so was the directing but not that many things stood out in the film.
