J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film Demolition

On paper the cast is great, but they can't put it on screen. Unsympathic characters all over, without exception. A diffuse & dissipating storyline makes this movie uninvolving & unconvincing. And, worst of all, there is Karen's terrible teenage son, Chris, a real pain. Gyllenhaal can't pull it out.
