Got to be one of the stupidest movies I've ever seen. Who bankrolled this disaster? To whom did Liam Neeson owe a favor? From the outdoor scenes obviously NOT Denver or Colorado (BC and Alberta Canada of course!), to the idiotic and unnecessary murders piling up over the course of 2 hours, this has got to be one of the fakest films ever made. It would be laughable if it weren't so boring.
It is a great subject, one rarely covered on film. There are anachronisms, such as saying "O.K," an Americanism from the 19th century, and lobster as food for the aristocracy: they were considered insects and fed only to prisoners in Britain. It plays fast and loose with historical accuracy, attempting to turn the movie into a feminist work. It is entertaining, however, and Olivia Colman is excellent as the Queen.
SPOILER ALERT. OK, we have a story about an obviously mentally ill father who abused and neglected his children growing up, but surprise! They all turn out successful in the end! The moral of the story? No matter what a f*ck up parent you are, your kids will all turn out just perfect. What a pile of trash.
"Unrestrained government"? How about unrestrained corporate and personal wealth? I'll pass on this one
