This was a really good movie, beautiful shot, well acted and had well written characters.

Why is it getting a B+? It had horrible pacing. It seemed at times like it was trying to be No Country For Old Men, trying to do these nice long artistic shots. But the sets were dull and not fun to look at, so I didn't find the need the linger on them. I also had a hard time taking Jake Gyllenhaal seriously as this rogue cop with plenty of tattoos. Just wasn't the character for him.
