Tyrannosaur Reviews

  • Oct 02, 2019

    Mullen always plays a good subhuman vermin creature and such is the power of his acting it makes me want to beat him to death with a baseball bat. Now, that is good acting. So too was Marsan's vile character evoking similar emotions. Colman was brillint too. A superior movie.

    With an "in-your-face" attitude, Tyrannosaur isn't easy to watch and won't appeal to everyone. It is however an honest and "real" film and the performances by Peter Mullan and Olivia Colman are very impactful

    This has been on my to-watch list for years and yet going in part of felt like I already knew what the film was going to be, a sort of sub-par Ken Loach kitchen realism. Well I was wrong, and glad to be. Colman and Mullan present two very nuanced characters here, you will make immediate judgments about them but then continually question those throughout. You will examine the similarities and yet the gulfs between their lives. Colman's powerful monologue here is so moving it's unreal, yes I'm in a sensitive place at the moment but I was in floods of tears. Some debut from Considine.

    Tyrannosaur is one of the best films I have ever seen. Olivia Colman gives the performance of a lifetime and should have been nominated for and won the awards for Best Actress at the BAFTAs and at the Oscars. Considine's direction is also stellar.

    unrelentingly grim and visceral but theres a strange dark beauty to this film, the acting is wonderful, the story heartbreaking but the ending is very touching.

    You won't see anything new in this movie, but this bleak and realistic drama filled with strong performances is another reminder of how cruel life can be, but still we have to preserve what is good in us.

    A brutal and unflinching character study from start to finish. Stellar performances all around.
