History buffs, especially those with an affinity for World War II stories and/or an interest in 20th century Czechoslovakia, may enjoy what "The Affair" has to offer
At times unpolished but offers a sympathetic portrayal of the title character and avoids excessive melodrama or a too-facile ending.
A mashup of a variety of common movie material, it does a lot of things adequately but lacks the time and scope to do any of them truly well.
"Coming 2 America" will disappoint only those who believed Murphy could do something amazing or hilarious with this dubious property.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity, Brief Nudity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Dominic Cooke
Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Merab Ninidze, Angus Wright, Rachel Brosnahan, Jessie Buckley
A sometimes-riveting old-fashioned spy thriller that is occasionally reminiscent of the fictional works of John Le Carre and Len Deighton.
The film’s inability to effectively meld its disconnected stories makes it feel like "Crisis" is two stand-alone movies that were shortened and crammed together.

Cast: Anthony Hopkins, Olivia Colman, Imogen Poots, Rufus Sewell, Mark Gatiss, Olivia Williams
An excellent movie but not a lot of fun to watch, especially for those with first-hand experience in this area.
What works as a sizzle reel totaling three minutes shows its inherent shallowness when expanded to nearly two hours.

Although the characters are “foreign,” they seem familiar.
Never takes itself too seriously, delivers all the goods one expects from this sort of action-thriller, and doesn’t overstay its welcome.
Illustrates what happens when filmmakers take a moderately interesting premise and surround it with witless writing, cringe-inducing acting, stagnant action, humor-deprived comedy, and feckless drama.
Although it might seem odd to call a disaster film “low-key,” the label applies in this case.
The flaws of "Justice League" were rooted too deeply for even a complete reworking to solve them.
