I knew I wouldn’t like this film. Out of Terry Gilliam’s film directing work, I am only a fan of Twelve Monkeys. I could not even get through Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas despite 3 attempts – I remember it fondly for the nap time I achieved. For some reason I thought that what Brad Pitt and Bruce Willis did for Twelve Monkeys, Christoph Waltz and Matt Damon could do for The Zero Theorem. I was so wrong. I have no idea what these A-list Oscar calibre stars are doing in this absurd sci-fi film. All of the acting is hammy, the script flat, the cinematography cartoon-like, and outside of a few fun moments, this film is a ridiculous piece of work. Avoid Avoid Avoid!
