Format: DVDVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This isn't a feel good movie, not a bleached-toothed Hollywood actor in sight. Tyrannosaur is raw and unremitting in its force.

I was first drawn to Paddy Considine after being mesmerised by his tour-de-force performance in Dead Man's Shoes.

Upon discovering he was writing and directing a movie I was all over it.

You can feel Considine's acting style seeping through Tyrannosaur, in turns pained, melancholy but suffused with a blinding rage that demands released.

The story centres around the unlikely friendship between an violent alcoholic and a christian charity shop worker who has a background of domestic abuse.

The damaged souls inexorably orbit around each other and their lives collide and change forever.

There is not one out of place scene, every second of screentime progresses this tough, bleak and captivating story.

without giving too much away I would suggest that if you are a fan of Considine you will love this. It is a film very British in its production and something that would not get past the Hollywood bankrollers due to its bleak edge and downbeat vibe. It is, quite honestly, all the better for this.

Unmissable.

Shocking, beautiful, a masterpiece! Throughout I was shocked & disturbed, however the absolute masterly acting from both leads and wonderful character building absolutely engages you and insists you continue to watch something you know will haunt you long after it ends. It is really a very moving and outstanding film. You will fall in love with Hannah and somehow Jason too, the loathing you will feel feel for Hannah's husband James will come close to unhealthy...all, I am sure, deliberate and perfectly executed. The end will bring a slight relief and the piece of music chosen on the final scene combined with the shot was for me a moment of cinematic perfection. If you can watch this you should, simple as that.

Format: DVDVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Olivia Colman and Peter Mullan head a strong cast in this powerful and thoroughly humane drama about two people and their immediate companions whose lives are or have been blighted by malign circumstances, mischance, innocence betrayed, wilful ignorance or downright cruelty. But that is by no means the whole of the story and the film in fact addresses in a variety of subtle and tender ways how such hardships can be ameliorated and redeemed through sympathy and love. To this extent Paddy Considine's "Tyrannosaur" is in the best sense "Dickensian", in that it offers a dark and moving morality tale which is finally resolved in a satisfying if not wholly reassuring manner.

Highly recommended.
