My biggest gripe with this movie is that it simply is not well made. The writing and acting are bland. There wasn't an interesting scene in the movie. The whole thing is based on the mistaken belief that watching a man age backwards is interesting. It is not. No event from Benjamin's life is worth putting into a film. No discussion he has with anyone is memorable. I truly believe that the only reason Benjamin ages backwards is that he knows he's a boring lump of nothing without that quirk. This movie really feels like it was made by a committee that was so obsessed with making an Oscar-winner that they threw away every risky idea.
