It truly is a fairly intriguing movie.

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

Four words: Don't Waste Your Time .

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

All in all, reasonably entertaining.

there is something worth watching here....

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

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.

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

Slow.

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

Took this story in unpredictable directions...

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.

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

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

Slow and agonizingly painful to watch .

This is a slow moving neo-noir modern western.

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.

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

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.

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 can be a pretty intriguing movie.

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.

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!

However, the setting was confusing at times.

And the story is compelling.

The story got predictable and stayed lame.

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

Absolute waste of my 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.

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

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

This was such a waste of everyone's time.

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

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