I kid you not, I have no idea how they screwed this movie up so badly.
The source material is fantastic, an epic story of betrayal and loss, humiliation and redemption, honor, integrity and self sacrifice. The Wiki version
I personally like the version from the movie “Ronin”
This by “Hollywood Standards” should be a no brainer. This movie needs a 2000 word script, a few decent actors and a director that can make a movie. $225 Million should be enough to promote and make the movie.
Instead I get, Keanu Reeves, a chick that turns into drapes and David Bowie as the “Terribly Rendered Fox”.
