A victory on points, if not quite a knockout blow.

Journeyman is a gentler human drama than Considine's terrific but tough directorial debut 'Tyrannosaur' but equally emotional.

March 26, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's clearly a well-researched film made with the best of intentions but Considine, though he is a wonderful actor, cannot help but not look right for the part.

In [Jodi] Whittaker's hands, [Emma] is a reminder of everything the damaged boxer has lost and needs to find again.

April 18, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Thoughtful, tender-hearted drama pivots around the actor-turned-director's central performance, but that turn is never allowed to overshadow terrific work by [Jodi] Whittaker and [Anthony] Welsh

A disappointing follow-up, then, to Tyrannosaur's fresh whirlwind of emotion. Journeyman is the stale air that follows.
