I'll Sleep When I'm Dead

I am so disappointed by this movie. I was so excited about it, and it was unbelievably boring. It had such a great cast. The general premise was ok, but the specific premise, was kinda lame. I mean, they really could have done so much more with it. The whole thing is a suicide and I felt like it really should have turned out to be a murder and it would have been a lot more interesting. Clive Owen is just trying to be intense the whole time, and he just turns out flat the whole time. They spend the first 20 minutes setting up the back story and his brother (Jonathan Rhys Myers) killing himself and why, but they don't tell you Will's (Clive Owen) reason for leaving in the first place, or any of that. It seemed like it should have had more in it. It was so slow paced, but it wasn't tense enough to maintain that slow of a pace.

A major disappointment.
