I wish people would give Daniel Radcliffe a break. OK, so maybe some of the role choices he’s made haven’t worked out, but if his first role hadn’t have been Harry Potter, then he would probably have made the same number of bum choices as most young actors. It’s just that we all know who he is.

The problem in this film isn’t Radcliffe at all; I think he’s OK, in fact. The problem is the director hadn’t quite decided what type of film this is, and so it kept lurching from black comedy to romance to horror. The flashback scenes were way too long and I think the film ended at least twice. It was just too out of balance tonally, and even Radcliffe and Juno Temple couldn’t rescue it.

Not all bad, but as a whole, not coherent.
