Good movie, mis-advertised

when you see the trailer for this movie it may look like a quiet sad movie, when in reality it has more action than expected. this movie is getting bad reviews but i mainly think it’s because they were expecting something different. more that half the movie is set in the dolls world and has a lot of action. this may not be liked by some, but it was there because this is marks world. it is meant to show that he is not right in his head and he cannot differentiate reality and marwencol and that he cannot get out of his war with addiction and PTSD. the movie could have been more organized and in times was almost confusing, but if you feel for mark it is truly a well done movie.

Left the theater after 40 min

Although the movie has an amazing cast and interesting plot, the violence and sexualization is over the top. There is an abundance of violence with the dolls, even though it is obviously fake, is still disturbing. All the female dolls are extremely sexualized versions of the humans they represent. Also, the main character was high on his anti-anxiety meds the whole time. The movie could have been done well had it been written differently, I liked the idea. I have never walked out of a movie in a theater before, but this one was just too much.
