Movie Review: Beware The Ides of March

Turns out, the soothsayer who warned Julius Caesar with the statement "Beware the Ides of March" may have actually been warning us of a bad movie coming out in late 2011 more than warning Caesar of his looming fate.

I saw the movie because it was a movie about politics, referenced Ohio, and had scenes filmed at familiar places in Ohio.  If all I could say was positive things about this movie, I'd have to stop right now.

It was pointless.  Unless the point was that politicians and all the people that work for them are valueless scumbags, I couldn't find a point to the movie.  If that was the point, I still conidr it pointless.

It was valueless.  Every single person with a line in this movie compromised their values.  Every. Single. One.

It was hero-less.  I don't quarrel with the acting.  The story, though, lacked any hero.  Every character in this movie was without character. 

It was just, plain worthless.  If there were ways to pay for a movie based on how much you liked it, I would have gotten every penny of my $7.50 back.

Listen to Caesar's soothsayer.  Beware the Ides of March.
