The filmmakers show a keen understanding of what worked in "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and pilfer shamelessly from the formula, coming up with 2021's equivalent of "Romancing the Stone."

Works best when viewed within the larger context of how moviemaking shifted during the 1950s and 1960s than as a stand-alone motion picture.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: Destin Daniel Cretton
Cast: Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Brie Larson, Tim Blake Nelson, Rafe Spall, O’Shea Jackson Jr.

Despite the whiff of “Oscar bait” surrounding the production, it’s a well-made, affecting tale about do-gooders who do good rather than merely muddying the waters.

Feels a little too much like a money grab and, although moderately entertaining on a popcorn level, there’s a sense of missed opportunity.

Falls afoul of tonal inconsistencies which can be especially detrimental in a story with its roots so deeply embedded in an abhorrent historical episode.

Although it may be difficult to “like” this film in a conventional sense, it offers a powerful and unforgettable experience that few will find easy to shake.

It’s an all-in performance, with Zellweger doing more than merely mimicking Garland.

There’s a point at which the “more of the same” mantra changes to “been there, done that.”
