A torpidly slow epic with a script that moves at the speed of light, the film is pockmarked with incidents that never cohere into a clear narrative.
Apart from those nutty camera angles and lenses, which throw you out of the action, The Current War is absorbing ...
The prevailing mood of The Current War is indifference; there's no point listing the crimes against the past committed by Michael Mitnick's dramatically inept script ...
What it can't do ... is generate even the slightest bit of interest in what happens to any of its characters.
For all its aggressive energy, The Current War is an uninvolving bore, making it unlikely to measure up as the kind of Oscar-baity prestige entry the Weinstein Company obviously had in mind.
This a watchably stylised period film, with interesting visual setpieces and faces looming up at us out of intricately contrived backgrounds.
With a better screenplay with more emotionally appealing characters, The Current War could've been a hit.
The Current War may not break new ground, but it finds exciting ways to make the old seem new.
Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon rides to the rescue with style to spare. Eye-catching cinematography (Chung-hoon Chung), production design (Jan Roelfs) and art direction (Stephen Bream) make the footage a joy to watch.
The Current War is boring, bad history.
Gomez-Rejon's The Current War is unfortunately neutralized by Mitnick's artless script.
It's very expensive and very busy, and it's utterly forgettable.
