I so love a happy ending. That was a happy ending, right?

Bad vs Bad. Pike is doing good job but tbh I expected more from Dinklage after the Got scenes but nah, ordinary acting.

I can not pass without mentioning the cliches for nowadays.
Strong women figures beating up sized bodyguards in movies are more common than usual now. That's ok. And the leading woman role in such a movie must be a lesbian with some caressing scenes with the sidekick woman. Also she must smoke at every scene. This is our world now. I can not keep full attention to the story because of these details.

Besides one woman messing the old Russian mob and beating up the whole team, I wonder what happened to Dinklage at the end of the movie. Sitting on a wheelchair can not be the end of his story after Pike got the "happy" ending.

Despite all these, it is a pass time movie with an uncommon story but with a sort of cheezy ending.

While sporting some of the most unlikable characters in a feature for some time, I Care A Lot somehow manages to squeeze out a compelling narrative via the dynamic of it's "love-to-hate" protagonist and antagonist. Pike and Dinklage fit their exaggerated caricatures comfortabley, leading to some great independent scenes, as well as some delightfully pointed conflicts between the two.
If you can forgive some of the liberties it takes with the story, I Care A Lot is a enjoyable twist on the usual "Mob vs Questionable Lawyer" thriller we've seen spun numerous times before. Just be prepared to endure an infuriating introduction, and to not really have anyone to root for throughout the entire runtime. If you can deal with having no defined "hero", this is some really solid stuff.

I don't know of any other woman who pulls off a sharp bob haircut more than Rosamund Pike.

One of the worst movies I've ever watched ....

Do you fuck care you bitch! Awesome film! Good act from rosamund pike, I hated it and loved it at the same time and so glad the ending ended like that.. macon blair you hero! I could watch the ending on a loop

What a rare treat!

Very clever premise in a world I knew nothing about. And one that chilled me to the core if it is even at all possible...!

Excellent performances all round. Riveting first 45 minutes that really went from strength to strength.

The voice over gave me similarities of Gone Girl and then the final 10 minutes didn't go the way I had hoped and I was left a little unsatisfied by the direction. It all felt a little bit Layer Cake for my liking.

Looking back on it the first half is almost a dark comedy and the last half almost a thriller - yet not being either fully.

But overall, thoroughly enjoyable and original premise.

8/10

It's good for the most part and Pike does well in her role. However, her character isn't explored properly and so comes across as rather shallow and one-note. The movie is also overlong, so while it's worth a watch, I started to stop caring about any of the characters after a while.

Oh thank goodness. I was so close to giving this a poor score because Marla just needed to die.
Not really sure how one singular woman managed to overpower an establish mob one by one with nothing but the power of determination. Also not overly sure how an established mob worth millions of dollars failed to execute a simple “organic” accident.
An incredibly dislikable character from the get go (but all’s well that ends well). Excellent performance from Pike nevertheless.
Great performance from Dinklage too. But not overly impressed by González’s performance though.

Great movie and great acting... until the last 30 minutes... Then all went to hell...
Everyone expected that she will get what she deserves from russian maffia.
This way her life ended like she was a victim of martyr. Bad... Bad.. Bad...
I have to say this: Who in the world would forgive the fact that Marla ordered move of his mother to psych ward? And after that even offer her a partenrship with all his money? Not me...This makes no sense.

Rosamund Pike flirts with another Gone Girl thriller in I Care A Lot. But, at best, I Care A Lot fails to deliver the despicable ending of it's forebearer, opting instead for something that doesn't make any sense. Honestly, I felt that this would have been better as a Miniseries with more time to develop a plausible ending.

I Care a Lot...for Dianne Wiest freedom.

There's not a single likable character in this whole movie for me to latch onto. So, at the end I didn't care...hehe. I also found the message of the movie confusing, because it has that empowering feel to it, like a "girl boss moment!", even though they are either doing awful things and how none of it was earned, which rubbed me the wrong way. It sends out the wrong message that doing terrible things or destroying other people’s lives (not just the bad guys) is OK, I guess.

It also doesn't help this was written by a dude named J Blakeson, a dreadful screenwriter who's previous writing credit was the unnecessary sequel to 'The Descent'. So yeah, this wasn't in good hands at the start.

This is honestly the most annoying movie experience I've had in a while. So shallow and empty.

Just watch 'Promising Young Woman' instead.

A promising premise gone rotten, that even stellar performance can't save.

Well, that was a decent first half of a movie...

I was somewhat satisfied with the ending... just wish it would have happened a lot sooner and hell of a lot more gruesome-- b*tch got off easy.

This was a movie with a great premise but it fell so short. In the first half, it’s a great story, great acting, you get caught between the two main characters, but in the second half, it hard to follow or even love one of them, even the acting feels bland. I got bored in the second half, too bad the script was so uneven.

loading replies

Great performance by the lovely Rosamund Pike. Good cast, important message. Watch it! Plot twists here and there.

loading replies

First half was 7 points but however second part 4 points. You had an original story but you succeed to transform trash. Good casting, good acting but weird scenario.

I'm confused about what I'm supposed to feel after this ending. It was good or bad? I really don't know...

Movie can be described in one word : Illogical

I found this to be really entertaining, and an easy watch. I was really impressed by the acting from Rosamund Pike.

Liked the movie, hated the ending.

Meh! sloppy work...tbh. such a bad ending.

loading replies

"I'm the worst mistake you'll ever make!"

Somehow Netflix is able to get a great cast, make sure the film’s cinematography look good, and yet, have a plot that falls flat. By "falls flat" I mean the main character is so unlikeable and infuriating, and while that is what they were probably going for, the pay off is not satisfying at all.

This is a fantastic commentary on the American healthcare system wrapped up in a dark comedy. There are so many snakes in this movie that about halfway through it I was asking myself which bad guy was going to win. I should have seen the end (and the answer to the question) coming but I did not. A fantastic job by the very under-appreciated Rosamund Pike.

Rosamund Pike crushes it again as the dark fuck you can't help but be impressed by.
Kinda bummed we didn't get a happy ending but the bad things you do have a way of coming back to you!

no one plays an evil b#&#"h better than Rosemund Pike, overall great premise and alot of missed opportunity, but the performances make up for the lack of the latter

loading replies

7 or an 8...7 or 8...I dunno. Glad I noticed a comment cluing me into it's existance (someone wrote, "Beers, Bros, Dinner and a movie, and this is the movie).

One of those ditties you love to hate! And, then, I wanted to love that ending, but...?

loading replies

Don’t waste your time...I’ve been giving at least five stars for most of the movies that I watched...this one...1 star. I wish I can give 0 star...

Some movies are terrible because of bad acting or directing. You can even enjoy some of them for that. This movie commits a cardinal sin: its lead character is taking on a Russian Mafia boss, and yet if you are normal, you will hate her guts the entire time. She is the least likable character I have seen in a while, with absolutely no redeeming quality. Of course she is a man-hating lesbian, which for some will qualify, for an added dose of woke-ism, typical of Netflix production. At the very least the ending is satisfying, with every normal viewer getting being granted their wish. But really this terrible at time sickening movie does not deserve 2 hours of your time

“Throw in lesbians and women’s rights and you’ll draw an audience” they said. “Don’t worry about the rest. It doesn’t really matter.”

That’s how I imagine this went down. What a piece of garbage this movie is. I spent the whole movie wishing basically every character would eat a bullet. The acting is atrocious. Yes, even Dinklage fails to be believable! The story only manages to be interesting because it poaches headlines of elder abuse. The loose ends are aplenty and the believability is nonexistent.

I have no idea at all why people are talking this movie up. It should be disposed of and never spoken of again.

Absolute rubbish. Nothing in this picture was true to life, a pathetic shallow feminist storyline which bordered in comical in places for the sheer audacity of the plot. It has wasted two hours of my life.

loading replies

Man, that was bad, cheesy and maybe the worst mob I ever saw or heard of:rofl:.

Feminism should be more than lesbians, vaping and a blonde "powerful" woman that "never loses"... as other said this just is cliched and shallow.

loading replies

the buildup was fantastic (i was excited to see another ruthless character and terrific performance by rosamund pike), with exciting twists and turns and the humor that was nailed perfectly in some instances, but the ending ruined it for me. EASILY a 8/10 movie without the ending. like... i can look past the illogical and irrational scenes in the movie like no one dying after the attempts to keep the story going but something about the collaboration of marla and roman doesn't sit right with me after the unforgivable actions marla has taken. seeing more badass stuff by jennifer peterson would've been cool, too!

I never hated the protagonist of a movie so much, that guy in the last scene was my hero

Best happy end in a long time.

What a thriller, albeit some predictability, but worth watching!

loading replies

Congrats for wasting my time.

good ending tho

loading replies

it promises a lot and then fails in all aspects of storytelling

loading replies

The director lost his nerve in the end.

Would have respected this movie more if they hadn't turn it into a hollywood ending.

Life is complicated. Wish the movie had the guts to acknowledge that.

loading replies

Good but disturbing.
I expect the setup in 1st act is all too common.

Dinklage & West completely stole the show.
I'd put West's understated quasi-villain performance in the realm of Walken's in Suicide Kings


I really hoped it would turn out to lead to a Hard Candy style karma-is-a-bitch-too cathartic conclusion, but turned out to be far too realistic.


Suspect she got popped in the end just tie a bow on it so audience get any type of closure, but I suspect in reality such people "get to use their real wealth as a weapon - a blunt club".

This film ripped me off because I invested a lot in the plot and it didn't live up to its end of the bargain when it short changed me at the pay off.

Still, the fact that the debate is about the questionable behavior of its characters and not the quality of the filmmaking should tell you how good the filmmaking was.

loading replies

In fact, the only part I liked was the ending. I don't know how I felt about this movie, this is a horrible feeling.

loading replies

Stupid. And actually not being harsh. Ms. Pike's performance was great, but was wasted on horrible writing...give the best Chef a bag of fertilizer and a wok, and you're going to be served sh#t.

loading replies

Don't watch now the con people are heroes, bad ending and unrealistic things happening.

Entertaining and good twists with great perfomance from Rosamund.It kept me interested till the end.7.5/10

loading replies

A beautiful, happy ending to a forced story.

looooooveed the ending! that's all i gotta say.

It's very hard these days to find a story you haven't seen before. So props to this movie for originality. The twist keep you on the edge of your seat and whoever says they knew where the story was going is BSing you.

Now this is a great movie!

loading replies

[Netflix] Rosamund Pike's character is so vile that it runs the risk that the consequences of her actions matter little to us, but the script strikes a good balance. It's a confrontation between villains, between predators, which makes the film really entertaining. Somewhat unbalanced in the third act, it doesn't dare to be totally uncomfortable in the end, which undermines part of it virtues.

loading replies

Awesome start, so-so ending.. but a good watch.

loading replies

Superb acting all the way through. About midway, it seemed as though there was no real direction then gained traction again to the end.

loading replies

Chris Messina was having so much fun! Couldn't we have gotten just a bit more of him, as a treat?

loading replies

Recommended, keeps you watching just to see what would happen next.
Story is original and well thought out.
As in many movies some events are unlikely to unfold in the way portrait here.
Peter Dinklage and Rosamund Pike must have had a blast playing these characters :smile:
