Anyone hoping for another ‘Fatal Attraction’-style bit of excellence from director Adrian Lyne will be sorely disappointed, especially when they realize they just spent two hours sitting through this slogging mess of a supposed psycho-sexual thriller. The story never moves at a pace quicker than a hobbled snail, and the characters are all varying levels of awful. Sure, Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas have talent, but it would have been better put to use in declining to sign on for this disaster in the first place.

1/5 stars
