Edgy, epic, rarely dull and stunning to look at. And best of all, it's about something. However, 20 minutes in I wished heroic Max (Matt Damon) would get a break - and not just his arm from a cop droid.

Jeffrey Gedmin

I don't think anyone seriously denies that welfare reform of some sort is necessary, whether to reduce waste and fraud, to re-establish proper incentive for the unemployed to look for work, or to help restore order to public finances.
