Consensus: A visual treat filled out by consistently stellar work from Robert Pattinson, Good Time is a singularly distinctive crime drama offering far more than the usual genre thrills.

Whatever the intentions of the filmmakers, Good Time is a promising but flawed final product.

When Good Time hits its visceral lows, Pattinson keeps the movie from feeling like an exercise in futility, finding something human within a character who's quickly losing himself in an atmosphere of total chaos.

Pattinson makes Connie one of the best roles of his career by turning a two-bit hood into a loyal family guy driven to help his brother. John Steinbeck would recognize these characters. So would Martin Scorsese, who is thanked in the credits.

You know what? I did have a good time. Aside from the disorienting shaky cam and gratuitous close-ups, Good Time serves up a great character-driven thrill ride… More
