    Comes out this Friday January 13,2017. I like the American genre of gangsters, I like period movies(1920's) also lots of gun hardware too. It had a limited release over Christmas but no reviews of the story.

    You won't watch a movie in which the actors play with guns if they are anti in real life? Oh brother, now I've heard it all. Lighten up man, you'd enjoy much more of this life.

    I'm waiting for Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch's movie about the muslim attack on Boston marathon event. I want to see how Hollywood spins this one to make it look like America deserved it.

    I agree with you W??G.
    Enough of supporting the careers of two faced scumbags that would have no problem flushing our 2nd Ammendment down the toilet.
    Screw e'm.

    I also don't care to enrich the coffers of the anti-gunning actors /directors.

    I enjoyed the book on which this movie is based. Might go see it but might not.

    Yes it does. The book is by Dennis Lehane and is the first of two following the same character. (The second book is World Gone By.)

    Well you can't go by me since I don't go to see *anything* at the movie theater.
    But in this case I doubt I'll even watch it when it hits HBO since I think BA is a major tool and don't particularly enjoy watching him.

    The previews look good. Ben Affleck is pretty wooden but watchable.

    If nobody went to movies that have gunz that would support the anti's view though, no?

    I like guns, I like good movies, I like guns in good movies... There are movies where someone went to the effort to make the gun scenes realistic (saving private ryan comes to mind). I personally don't like (and won't watch) the typical hollywood productions: guys shooting 20 targets at once without aiming, firing from the hip, side to side and behind their shoulder, hundreds of shots but no reloading, guns going off next to someones ear without hearing damage, etc.

    The same liberal idiots who preach gun control, make some of the most violent movies involving guns... but I'm a bad guy cause I like protecting my family and shooting paper targets in the desert?

    Its your money, if you want to spend it on crap movies, go for it! :deadhorse:

    p.s. 80's movies did have some bad ass guns :p

    Many are consumed by politics. It is really unhealthy.
