As drama, it's thin and unconvincing, but still, more McCrory please.
It's not exactly the kind of film that's likely to set the world alight, but it's made all the better for its low-key disposition and palpitating subject-matter.
The eroticism and passion are convincing and, for a while, Frankie's naivety is plausible. But the plotting is B-feature stuff ...
A riveting performance by Helen McCrory holds our attention even if this dramatic thriller suffers from efficient but bland direction and a script that fails to dig very far beneath the surface.
As a love story it tells you a lot, thanks largely to the way McCrory shapes and underlines her part.
Some interesting ideas are buried under a barrage of truisms.
The plot unfolds in politically correct directions, but it requires the leading lady to make idiotic choices throughout, which make no sense in the context of her intelligence.
Right the way through to the fence-sitter of an ending, the movie looks like it was written by committee at a screenwriters' seminar.
McCrory wears her pain well, as though from a lifetime of accumulated injuries. Disillusioned and weary, she carries the film.
Flying Blind is worth seeing for a terrific performance from Helen McCrory, but the central relationship lacks chemistry and the script's refusal to flesh out its characters is ultimately frustrating.
Sex, suspicion and unmanned drones make for an intriguing mix ...
A tough, compelling thriller touching on race, prejudice and contemporary Britain. Not Blitz, in other words.
