We gave it a C+

Jake Gyllenhaal’s wild-card performance is the only reason to bother with Dallas Buyers Club director Jean-Marc Vallée’s manipulative downer about a widower who deals with his icy emotional numbness by literally taking a sledgehammer to his old life. At one point he says, “Everything has become a metaphor.” Out loud! That’s how unsubtle Demolition is. C+
