The kind of unfortunate film that, while not actually bad, should perhaps not have been made because the story belongs in another medium. The facts of Marston's file - his polyamory and his role in the invention of the lie detector - are interesting enough in themselves, but the details don't sustain a two hour film. The climax is hammy enough to make you question exactly how much of what you're watching really is drawn from life, and Rebecca Hall's perfect rendition of a long-time UK expatriate in the US is pitch perfect enough to make her every word sound like fingernails on a blackboard.
Not as consistently funny as the first one (despite the presence of Arnett and Cera) but perhaps more consistent in its plotting and characterisation, and a damn good twist on the Batman mythos in its right.
Well designed but otherwise B-grade in every department (yes, including the acting, despite the roster on display). As the plot wears on, definitely turns into less of a whodunnit and more of a whocareswhodunnit. Not appalling, but bad enough to make you wince a little at the obvious set-up for a sequel at the end.
Incredibly well put together put spottily paced tale of police brutality and prejudice. Starts to drag a bit in places, but comes back together somewhat at the end. Does raise the tantalising question of how awards season is going to handle a film about racial discrimination where the undisputed most valuable player is the white guy playing the villain.
