Not bad at all, just don't drag this out in front of the kids! Too many characters to keep up with at times who were real people in history I believe but you get past that & can keep watching without having to know who everyone is all the time. Could have been shorter I think but don't let that put you off, I like the good old 90min movie! Put this on your list at medium & you will be pleasantly surprised. Don't rent if you don't like costume heavy drama & it's not as raunchy as it's made out!
Not for kids!

Bad language, very bad. Debauchery abounds. Depp is excellent as is Malchovich. Not for anyone who is easily offended or even quite easily offended. I couldn't say that it was enjoyable yet at the same time it was interesting and strangely compelling.

Well written and acted but couldn't get into it. A bit drab or I was I just a bit hungover - tried it 3 times... never got to the end [and i was only hungover the first time]. Quiet grainy and dark [deliberately so] also.

Maybe I wasn't in the best humour to watch this - I found it just about OK...
