Conclusion: 3/5
This is a very enjoyable film and found myself laughing a lot. The plot of this film is all over the place and so is the script. It is like there is almost too much happening at once and they can’t even keep up. I know I have said this many times but I think David Oyelowo is brilliant and he is the one that keeps the film going. Every time he came onto the screen, he was a joy to see. I wasn’t really convinced with Amanda Seyfried and Harry Treadaway’s sub plot. There was no reason why they had to add them into the film as it would have probably worked better without them. The director of this film is the brother of Joel Edgerton. I would probably have been disappointed with this film if I had paid to see it in the cinema.
