Oh man, this could've been an 8 or 9. But
Spoiler: show
with this reduced ending, it's an unsatisfiying 7. Next to nothing of the 2-day-long, Lambs-style SWATing, and John finally being the one who's "Foxed"-in, is seen. The rare case of a biopic being less sensationalistic than its real story. Hell, I even would've loved to see him being burried in his wrestling singlet, as per his will. This just doesn't fully cut it on the bonkers-meter. Sure, it's an handsome piece of film and a quiet, elegant American/capitalism allegory. But still, the trailer and posters promised more Lambs and the events sure had it.
