If you're looking for a serious biopic I imagine you'll need to keep on looking. This movie makes the serious matter of destroying a jet setter and iconic car designer into light comedy. It does entertain, but it feels like someone read a book about John DeLorean and not much else. In spite of a notable performance by Lee Pace as John DeLorean you only get a one-dimensional rendering of this complex man. It does succeed in making DeLorean a tragic likable figure spite of the suspicion he was a narcissist consumed with equal measures of hubris and delusions of grandeur. With the right combination of desperation and ridiculous entrapment the unthinkable happened. DeLorean, even as a non-guilty verdict was delivered, was essentially destroyed. Knowing there was such a tragic downfall makes the comedy often seem clumsy. Actually more of this movie is devoted to the FBI informant who baited DeLorean named Jim Hoffman as played by Jason Sudeikis. It's hard to believe as Sudeikis, who plays his usual comedy schtick, depicts this character realistically. This forces the viewer to see a sordid tale as something hardly as gripping as anything of this gravity should be. You must accept this is a comedic rendition of a utterly ridiculous government sting. One which only ending up tearing apart a flawed man, a company, a dream, and a family. It glosses completely over the human tragedy and huge financial loses. I guess the movie actually could be said to mirror the DeLorean car in that it had so much potential only to fail on many levels.

Flawed Man Gets Flawed Movie...Still Worth A Watch ThoughReviewed byAudioFileZVote: 6/10
...if it wasn't for the terrible writing. The screenplay had many plot and technical issues. The pacing was terrible that the 108 min run-time felt much longer. Too many long dragged out/unnecessary scenes that should've been edited down/out to fix the plot issues - e.g. why the briefcase (without giving away any spoilers) - an important omission of that detail, no? The editing wasn't any better. The sound/score was off and out of place in some scenes. Directing/camera work and cinematography was decent, but the production overall still felt like a low budget B-grade film from inexperienced filmmakers. On the plus side, casting was great and all actors where convincing, especially Lee Pace and Jason Sudeikis. Overall it was still an enjoyable biopic on John DeLorean. It's a generous 7/10 from me
Jason Sudekis is always fowl mouthed but I couldn't even enjoy this movie. It wasn't well written at all, just profane.
