AVOID. Please do something more worthwhile

Spoiler Alert!

Let's clear a few things up. I don't see any haters here including myself. I specifically registered with this site to make my first comment to save some people time and frustration from seeing a truly awful movie.

This is by far one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

There are so many logic errors within the entire movie it detracts from the already miserable script. The basic premise was sound but was executed so poorly it is amazing to think people can produce this and say "that'll do" or even worse everyone involved thought this was an outstanding piece of work and they are actually deluded.

The only notable performance was that of Josh Duhamel who staggers from one bad scene to another and still comes across as a good actor. Alice Eve's performance of someone who is depressed was entirely comical; her acting was so wooden she would put a tree to shame.

Also landing the absolutely absurd cliff hanging twist on the poor girl tested her non facial expression to the limits.

From the picture you would think the two major actors of Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins would elevate this diatribe to something just above puerile but both fail miserably. They both have such a minor role that they are shoe horned into the role as vehicle for a really bad script.

There is even a laughable school yard exchange between Josh Duhamel and Al Pacino in a cafe "your finished" "no your finished" "no you're so finished you'll never work again" "some arbitrary quote from Al" followed by Al Pacino boasting "how's that some Shakespeare for you".

These are stellar actors who have both made a bad decision apart from taking the money of course.

Please pardon the theatrics

Misconduct is the most disappointing type of drama/thriller, the one which seems kind of watchable for thirty minutes or so and then, twist after twist, turns into a moronic potboiler.

Lawyer Ben (Josh Duhamel), whose marriage with Charlotte (Alice Eve) has seen better days, meets old flame Emily (Malin Akerman), who teases him into rekindling a relationship and at the same time turns out to be the current girlfriend of rich executive Denning (Anthony Hopkins), against whom Ben's firm, led by Abrams (Al Pacino), has clashed before. Emily shows Ben incriminating data from Denning's personal files, but is then abducted... or is she? And that's just the beginning of a series of labyrinthine, increasingly silly events.

The movie is a ball of noir tropes crumpled together, like a dead-serious version of The Big Lebowski, with femme fatales, trophy partners of smug millionaires, fake kidnappings, mysterious henchmen and a befuddled protagonist stumbling into a string of red herrings and non-sequiturs. Unlike the Coens' sharp, hilarious classic, Misconduct oozes stupidity from every frame.

Duhamel portrays his amoral lawyer doing an effective "Timothy Olyphant passing a kidney stone" impression - at least I suppose that was the intended goal. Byung-hun Lee plays the world's least proficient hit-man, one who attacks his victims by punching them while riding a motorcycle and yet fails to kill someone tied to a chair.

Former titans Hopkins and Pacino probably high-fived between takes at the thought of the umpteenth easy paycheck. Although Pacino does get to utter the line I put in the review title, which serves as a nice meta commentary on the last part of his career.

Poor Alice Eve is uncannily stiff and dead-eyed - not the world's greatest actress to begin with, she gets saddled with an absurd character. Also, casting lookalikes Eve and Akerman (both statuesque, clear-eyed, round-faced, long-haired blondes in their mid-thirties) as, respectively, the protagonist's spouse and potential lover, was an idiotic choice. You want COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TYPES for the contrasting roles of the Wife and the Temptress (think Emily Mortimer/Scarlett Johansson in Match Point), not clones.

Add Julia Stiles (in a minor part as a detective) as another long-haired blonde of similar age and facial structure, and this is starting to look like The Stepford Wives.

This year I had misfortune to watch some really bad movies. Recent one is Geostorm - but I did not expect much from that. Here, you see 2 famous veterans among actors, some called them 2 greatest and like. And this movie is just one big mess, misfire in all levels, aspects. Everything is bad - direction, story, storytelling, editing, and yes, acting in most cases. Should we blame Al Pacino, Anthony Hopkins for bad acting, or rather director and poor script ? Actually, who invested money in this disaster of movie ? As I see, they wanted to make some noir, with twists, something what will keep viewers on edge. Huh, I almost felt asleep at about 1h. There were many scenes witch simply did not make sense, were overdone, too long - like some of motorcycle attacks. Maybe worst was scene where Pacino and Hopkins were together (only one in this mismovie) - maybe it had some sense, but was presented so poorly, and no logic at all. For the end need to mention Alice Eve - did she was on something during filming ? How she passed casting for this movie - was criteria to look doped in all scenes ? Sorry to say such things, but it was some worst acting I ever seen. Rating: 2 - just because some pictures on exhibition were good :-)
