First off the title, I didn't like the title of the movie. It needed a better title. It's based on the novel by George V. Higgins and according to the book, it was suspose to take place in Boston, but movie the location to New Orleans; where it's always rainy and Obama is always on television. Brad pitt didn't make use of his character. It wasn't much to see in the is movie. Lots of talk and the brutual violence to make up for all that talk. I didn't expect "The Godfather" or "Goodfellas," but still the film let down. James Gandolfini's character comes off like a rehash of "The Sopanoes." Ray Liotta's character comes off as being beaten, shot, thrown though a door and being hit by another car. He's the only person that I feel sorry for the most.
The “them” in the title appears to mean the audience. I have seen bad movies before but have not walked out of one until now. If you let more talk (actually rambling) then this is for you.
