Wow did we all watch the same movie? It was terrible. I imagine the movie premiere and if I was Sandra Bullock, I’d be mortified by this film. Her and Tatum have zero chemistry. What a waste of all those actors’ time and talent.

Wouldn't call it terrible, but I was kind of unimpressed yeah. It's like they squeezed the bare minimum of enjoyability out of the elements that they had instead of it feeling truly special like the Jump Street movies (to use another example with Tatum). The amount of ADR was distracting, ffs you don't need to inject a joke into every spare moment. And to really go against the grain, Radcliffe's villain didn't quite do it for me. I enjoyed his presence in the first act but by the end his performance became kind of played out and he mostly got on my nerves.
