Do actors even read scripts anymore? Woody Harrelson, Kate Winslet, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, and Casey Affleck all signed on for this underworld drama, probably banking on the reputation of Australian director John Hillcoat (The Proposition, The Road). But Matt Cook's maiden feature-length screenplay—something about dirty Atlanta cops being blackmailed by the Russian Jewish mafia—is so murky it leaves the whole cast looking tentative, if not defensive. As Hillcoat proved with his Virginia bootlegging drama Lawless (2012), he ain't from around here, and his treatment of Atlanta never amounts to more than a few onscreen titles announcing streets and neighborhoods. Really the movie takes place in a world of subterranean garages where anyone sitting in the driver's seat of a car is just asking to get his head sprayed across the windows. With Norman Reedus, Michael K. Williams, and Clifton Collins Jr.
