Jared Leto gained a bunch of weight to play Mark David Chapman for this film set in the days leading up to John Lennon’s death. Aside from the despicable idea of justifying Chapman’s fame-seeking by making him the subject of a film, there isn’t really much here.

Director J.P. Schaefer uses a lot of elliptical editing and voiceover (in which Leto sounds like Woody Harrelson doing Michael Jackson) and shows off Leto’s gut every chance he gets. The result is vapid and distasteful. Grade: D
