Former Special Forces soldier (Sean Penn) who has PTSD tries to reconnect with his long time lover, but first must go on the run across Europe to clear his name.
Such a disappointment, with the likes of Penn, Idris Elba and Javier Bardem you would expect so much more. Don’t try and second guess the plot, there’s no twists believe me. It’s clumsy and shockingly bad. However, it could be a winner for anyone who just loves a brainless action movie who are just looking to see a few big names fight it out on screen.

Dreamworks really have suffered to make a decent animation since the likes of Shrek and Kung Fu Panda and this is no exception. The whole thing just seems way to familiar and you may find yourself thinking they have stolen ideas from other successful animations such as Toy Story and Despicable Me. Oh yes its pleasant and charming enough to warm the very depths of your heart but would be nice to see an animation actually making an effort to be different.

Jerry is a seemingly normal man trying to succeed in his new job at the Milton Bathtub Factory. He lives in a normal apartment the type you would expect from a young bachelor with his dog, Bosco, and his cat, Mr. Whiskers. Yet something seems off. As the new guy at work, Jerry is asked to help plan the company picnic, and he meets Fiona, an attractive English girl from accounting. Jerry immediately takes a liking to Fiona and excitedly goes home to tell his pets about her. And surprisingly, they answer. But all this is just the beginning of an insanely bizarre and twisted tale.
Quirky, Sad, Comical and gory The Voices will leave you totally dazed and confused (make sure you stay till the end as there is an extremely surreal dance scene from the cast) but as depraved dark and warped comedies go it certainly is enjoyable.
