    Isn't overwhelmingly good, but it's just nutty enough to keep you watching.

    A borderline unintelligible, scattershot attempt at Lynchian neo-noir that takes intellectual and aesthetic risks it has no reasonable hope of pulling off. And yet train wreck that it may be, it's completely watchable, at times garishly eye-catching, and certainly the only film in theaters that features Snoop Dogg comparing himself to Alfred Hitchcock.

    The movie never rises above a style-over-substance exercise.

    For a noir, the film is way too talky and convoluted, yet for a physics lesson, it's trash.

    Agent-turned-director Tony Krantz has a penchant for stylization that quickly slides into a velvet-painting cheesiness, which-along with the script's pseudoprofound Philosophy 101 maxims-renders the atmosphere less noirish than ridiculously cartoonish.

    Without Antonio Banderas, The Big Bang would be a whimper of a movie, too awful to watch.

    With eyes closed and jaw firmly set, concentrating hard enough to break a blood vessel, I cannot think of a movie more incomprehensible, moronic, pointless or abominable than a load of trash called The Big Bang.
