ReelViews for movies starring 'James McAvoy'
Brash, energetic, and exhilarating, any points it loses because of a lack of originality are gained back as a result of Theron’s dedication.
Suffers from a massive narrative condensation that not only mutes the film’s emotional impact but creates an erratic tone.
Overlong, talky, filled with meta references, and with a strangely low-energy tone, the movie never fully gels.
Combining the two movies, there’s a clear beginning and ending, and if the latter isn’t as strong or promising as the former, at least the entire story is told.
