    This has got to be one of the most boring, tedious films i have seen in a while. although some good dialogue and acting, mainly by john hurt and ian mcshane, make this film more bearable at times.

    44 Inch Chest gets by on the quality of its performances.
  2. The film's action takes place mainly in one room, with the five characters posturing like angry macho men but slowly revealing their arrested development and juvenile ignorance of life in general and women in particular.

    On the debit side, and it's a doozy, the picture's narrative trajectory fails to deliver a third act that takes the story anywhere of note except into a silly realm of cut-rate surrealism. Final reel ends not with the expected bang but with an almost inaudible whimper.
