It's just long. And very broken up. It's practically 3 movies. The first focuses on one character, the second on another, and finally the third on how those two characters' lives have intermingled.
Pretty good job acting by Gosling and Cooper and some great shots throughout the movie.
Though very tense, it is not an action movie. It is a drama.
One of those flicks that has me thinking even the day after. It is an interesting look at the American Dream, the arrogance and humility of men, the change a child makes in a man's life, what a father is, the inability to escape our fathers' sins, and ambition.
I will say I did not care for the ending, though, and I did find myself bored at times. Overall, though, a good flick worth watching.
I liked that it was three pieces that were all chain reactions or interlinked. One thing lead directly to another and without it, the chain reaction completely stopped. Idk, I really enjoyed it.
I found Bradley Cooper's son to be extremely annoying and easily the worst part of the film
He almost ruins the film. Seriously.
The whole tone and feel of the movie changed with this Fonz type character
