A film wth lotsa verbals, innit?
on 23 October 2016
With a fantastic lineup of English actors (John Hurt, Ray Winston, Tom Wilkinson, Ian McShane ...) it was definitely a must see movie and with 'the main geezers giving it large' throughout, it didn't disappoint. The action is mainly set in flashback, with the present being set in one drab room where the protagonists discuss the fate of their captive.
The dialogue is brilliant in revealing the individual characters and the wordplay keeps the tension high throughout.
Definitely worth watching - it came across to me as being in the same league and style as the original 'Sleuth' movie.
