Michael Fassbender is really good and acts his heart out during the end, and that man can cry on screen and very authentically. Also the scene where he breaks down and cries is the most effective scene in the film, but only if you paid close attention earlier. Also Javier Bardem was so good as an eccentric spikey haired character known as Reiner. Cameron Diaz was given the most different role as an over-the-top, seductive, and main external antagonist, Malkina. Penelope Cruz and Brad Pitt also deliver solid performances. But they are delivering very strange dialogue.
