Verdict – 1/5

 

Pros –

 

1) Jonah Hill as Peter Brand : His best non-comedic performance so far.

 

Cons –

 

1) Same old “escape to victory” plot.
2) No heated argument scene between Philip Seymour Hoffman and Brad Pitt –  even for the sake of artistic liberty.
3) Chris Pratt, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright : good actors with no scope in the story-line.
