For Queen and Country Reviews

May 21, 2013
Well-intentioned but overreaching.

Denzel Washington gives a forceful performance as the black protagonist, but the story sinks into mere cops-and-robbers melodrama after a while.

This is a serious subject, and worthy of a serious journalistic report. That is not, however, what For Queen and Country is.

Artfully directed and acted, For Queen & Country errs by overstating its case.

The choice of Washington doesn't help: he isn't bad in the part, but his accent strays absurdly. More worrying is the often corny plotting, the by now tired-looking exploitation of Broadwater violence, and a preposterous shootout ending.

Aside from the bizarre sight of Denzel Washington sporting a cockney British accent, there's not much worth recommending about For Queen and Country.

Sadly, in trying to make a point about an unjust society, director Martin Stellman and writer Trix Worrell go disastrously overboard.

For Queen & Country is suspense-free, a laboriously paced look at the poor man's impotence in an unjust society.

Washington creates the character as a convincing, sympathetic person, and he deserves more than to have the character thrown away on a phoned-in plot.
