    Two Jacks is finally more of a curiosity than a viable dramatic event, but its bringing together of Danny and Jack Huston in a pair of tales related to their filmic legacy makes it a pungent if small addition to the legend of the Huston family.

    The movie as a whole has an immediacy that’s appealing even in its weaker second half.

    Written and directed by Bernard Rose (“Immortal Beloved”), 2 Jacks has a pleasing circular structure, and it doesn’t push the parallels between old and new Hollywood to absurd limits.

    False gravity weighs down 2 Jacks, a father-son drama less interested in exploring familial relations than in tut-tutting the millennials.

    Inconsistencies cause more confusion than the magic Rose is presumably going for.

    Slack narrative and abysmal dialogue render the vague generational satire meaningless to anyone unfamiliar with Tolstoy’s work (and depressing to those in the know).

    The embarrassingly low production value of Bernard Rose's 2 Jacks works symbiotically with the film's botched performances.
