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.

A moving tale of love and conflict, told by two wonderful British actors.

Journeyman delivers a heavy look at the man behind the gloves damaged by his craft, and whilst not perfect, it's still compelling.

Considine is phenomenal in the central role and really puts everything into the part.

Journeyman is aptly titled; after a thrilling debut, this film feels like the effort of a journeyman director, without a discernible sense of style.
