Now playing in the US and Canada. Previews this weekend in the UK; opens officially next Friday.
The neo-luddite attitude is bad, but this commits a far worse sin: it’s dull. If only it worked as a schlocky pile of pulp nonsense, that’d be something...

No, it’s not wildly different than other science fiction, hero’s journey, and adventure movies. Sometimes we call such stories archetypal. Mythic, even.

Now playing in the UK. Opens May 2nd in the US and Canada.
Suffers badly by comparison with the cogent, witty Avengers flicks. This feels like a campy Saturday-morning cartoon left over from the 1970s.

Opens in the UK tomorrow, and in the US and Canada next Friday.
We say things like, “Oh, I’d watch that guy read the phone book,” and this is almost that. Except it really is absolutely riveting, and that’s no joke.

Now in limited release in the US and Canada. Still clinging to a few screens in the UK.
Almost entirely ignores the most amazing aspect of this true story, and even the very good performances point us in another direction than the intended one.
