Lavishly produced with the best intentions but it is edited weird and over-complicates a pretty simple plot. Even for a movie positioning itself as a mystery of sorts. The incredible ensemble cast isn't bad though. I liked the main trio of Christian Bale, John David Washington, and Margot Robbie together. The political thriller elements (inspired by the real life Business Plot) is fascinating for history buffs, but it feels half-baked into this sprawling whodunit.

The phrase "too much of a good thing" has never been more aptly applied than David O. Russell's Amsterdam - which is stuffed to the gills with talent but most of which is squandered in parts that are much too brief. Even though Christian Bale and Margot Robbie seem to be on board - most of the rest of this all-star cast is wasted and the story can't decide if it wants to be serious or not.

It’s incredible how many great actors you can shoehorn into your movie and get the worst performance out of everyone; Christian Bale, on the other hand, is the only good one here. John David Washington is so one-note here, as he has the same tone of voice and facial expression throughout. You can tell Robert De Niro is phoning it in regarding his line delivery and overall lack of interest. The whole movie feels like an overdose of “acting pills”. It’s a plotting movie that thinks it’s clever and funny but ends up being a confusing and boring film.
