This isn’t Once with Shia LaBeouf. A romantic relationship begins with Evan Rachel Wood and then things turn for the worse when it's reveals that Wood’s character happens to be the “property” of a crime boss. And that’s when the movie begins to more closely resemble Trainspotting, or a likeminded Guy Ritchie joint with equal parts drug ecstasy and bullet-slinging criminal activity.
The Charlie Countryman cast, alone, could get people into theaters. In addition to LaBeouf and Wood, the ensemble rounds out with the always wonderful Mads Mikkelsen, Rupert Grint (continuing to find his way in a post-Harry Potter world), Melissa Leo and Vincent D’Onofrio.
