To be honest, yes it’s disappointing that Jared Leto is fat in this movie; it sucks even more when he’s shirtless, twice. But, once you get past that there’s really something to be said for this film.
Jared Leto pulls off an impressive performance per usual and the film is complimented by Lindsay Lohan’s appearances. But, really, this film is all about Leto as Mark David Chapman, the inevitable assassin of music legend, John Lennon.
I found intrigue in the film’s choice to not go for the obvious. There is hardly any background on Chapman leading up to the days before the shooting. There was no “daddy hit me” (or worse) and yet you still found empathy for the disturbed Chapman. The film’s style is almost reminiscent of the enjoyable Bobby (2006).
The film is not perfect. But it deserves consideration.
