A hapless accidental criminal has to transport a cursed gun across Mexico.
The big question here is how has a group of people as talented as director Gore Verbinski and cast Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini and Gene Hackman have contrived to make a movie as messy and poor as this. It doesn’t know if it wants to be a comedy or a gangster film and ends up just hanging limply in between. There are a few decent moments as you would expect from such a bright cast but they are far too few to save a confused and unconvincing movie. Possibly the worst film Pitt has ever done?
