3.0 out of 5 stars Step this way, 23 Jan 2014
This review is from: The 39 Steps [DVD] (DVD)
The latest dramatisation of Buckan's classic espionage tale is far less tepid than I feared but I found that it went through the motions rather than delivered the thrills I was looking for. I was always going to like this on some level as I really like the tale and have the "official" versions as well as few of the pretenders. The production values seemed first class and RPJ makes for a dashing Hannay; I personnally liked the inclusion of Lydia Leonard although her character actions were jarring at times since Hannay is supposed to be the hero. The screenplay contained a couple of odd moments; a pointless encounter with a ventriloquist to name one. Having said all this I still enjoyed it; although it was a bit like meeting an old friend whose previous tails of high adventure have now mellowed with age.
