Slow and agonizingly painful to watch .

Even though this movie was quite predictable, IMHO, it was still a great watch and we were spared the over-the-top violence that so many other lesser movies rely upon.

This was such a waste of everyone's time.

Nate ordinarily ordinarily will take a pure curiosity, and correct right before intensive These are escaping Sam's oppressive grasp and bonding higher than Lily's incapacity to fly.

The only thing that's really amusing or entertaining about it is the fascination and wonder (it draws from you) in how things became so miscalculated to result in what's unfolding before you.

Mr. Rourke mopes through a significant part of the motion picture on the edge of tears, and Mr. Murray's executioner is a curt figure.

Four words: Don't Waste Your Time .

The was an unforeseen incredibly engaging Film that life as many as its title.

Absolute waste of my time.

While longtime scribe and Murray collaborator/friend Mitch Glazer makes an intriguing directorial debut (he co-wrote the Bill Christmas classic "Scrooged") - to say the least - the film sadly is a one-note oddity that doesn't know if it's supposed to be a metaphorically 'serious'noir (i.

All in all, reasonably entertaining.

Passion Play was not spectacular, but it has that artsy feel to it and was entertaining enough if you have the time.

It was a nice and entertaining movie, good story, all the actors have played their part beautifully.

These tragic-but-bland creatures ended up designed for one another.

 Now, try hard to imagine the most cliché and boring resolution to that scenario possible.

Author-director Mitch Glazer, even so, screenwriter of "The Recruit," falls again on lifeless archetypes and uninteresting melodrama within a story that either begs to reject People today acquainted substances or excel at them.

This is a slow moving neo-noir modern western.

I didn't expect an Oscar or Globe class story line in this movie(Nor it delivered) but plain simply, This movie took the level of actors who we thought "boring!

If you are bored and need an hour and half to kill this is for you.

And the story is compelling.

It truly is a fairly intriguing movie.

The story was good, a bit predictable about the action Rourke will take.

Yet, somehow, this drab, banal plot-description is less boring than the movie itself.

This can be a pretty intriguing movie.

The film was entertaining enough until the end, which I thought was far fetched and just to strange for my taste.

its worth watching when there is nothing else to see, or if you have a odd sense of humor, then your gonna find this really funny like i did.

Conjuring mystery, it goes abracadabra and snaps its fingers, however nothing happens.

But in truth, I found the movie a wonderful example of luring the audience in with all things 'predictable', until the very end.

Seedy bar trumpeter, Mickey Rourke, gets gets hit over the head outside the bar, gets dragged to the desert to be shot, presumably for some shady misdemeanour.

Despite the fact that Fox's PC created wings don't hold up to the rehashed up front positions they're given, Passion Play at any rate looks flawless, on account of the stunning work of cinematographer Christopher Doyle.

Took this story in unpredictable directions...

It's a fascinating mess overall and even Rourke's comeback kid can't save it nor can the always beguiling Fox.

The film contains many symbolic references to the nature of the story, that may cause the plot to be too predictable, unless they pass unnoticed.

When a game is rained out or guys poker night falls through this movie can readily step in for an enjoyable time.

there is something worth watching here....

But then I thought: why waste *more* time on this movie?

It dragged on as if it didn't really know where to go and the ending was so terrible I nearly laughed.

The story got predictable and stayed lame.

Glazer tries his hardest to make the film unique and quirky but it's mainly just a bore.

However, the setting was confusing at times.

It's a fascinating mess overall and even Rourke's comeback kid can't save it nor can the always beguiling Fox.

" The movie contains tons of slow, seemingly useless, endless dialouge.

Slow.

I think everybody will find something boring in this film in spite of the haphazard use of metaphors.

Its drawn out and I feel is if I need another drink or 2 to stay sane.
