First off, if you are reading this review, I don't see eye to eye with other fan's views on the Coen brothers. I think they have put together a lot of decent films and a couple great ones, but I don't find many of their films "special". This movie is no exception. I found it to be okay. I watched it all the way through at least. It is just flat to me. I didn't feel very strong feelings towards any of the players, except maybe the sister, she was easy to hate. With these gangster type movies, what really draws me is when I feel emotionally connected to what is happening through liking the one side or hating the other. I feel they did not accomplish that with these characters.
