The cast of this movie is shining, and the performance of Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper is impressive, yet, the whole movie looks kind of routinized and better than being boring. It has a complete story (including the trick at the ending part), a good cast, a good supporting music and acceptable rhythm, but as a whole it has few parts to impress the audience. I know Christian Bale gained weight so much to devote himself to this movie, I appreciate that but this movie is really not a top one.
The movie had 10 nominations for 2014 Oscar but won none.
Cast: Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Lawrence
