    This is from the guy who wrote Sicario and Hell or High Water, and you can definitely tell. I thought this was really damn good, and may well be Jeremy Renner's best performance I've seen from him yet at this. Definitely worth checking out.

    Jeremy Renner is extraordinary. He has the lines and the character arc that might result in an Oscar nomination. But holy moly, Elizabeth Olsen is top-notch as well. All in all, it's hard to find much fault with this film. The writing, the performances, the pacing ... it's all good. It left me shaken and haunted.

    I liked this, but it's not as complex as Hell or High Water, and Renner, while good in this, is far greater in The Town IMO. Her role/performance wasn't spectacular or anything, but I increasingly think Olsen will win an Oscar one day, in the right role. She's less chameleonic but better-at-drama than Brie Larson.
