We gave it a B-

Alejandro González Iñárritu directs a story in which a stray bullet turns into an international crisis involving Americans (Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett), a Mexican nanny, and embassies jumpy about terrorism. The choreography of clashes looks busy for the sake of math, not message.
