ReelViews for movies starring 'Lily James'
Everyone will be awed by Gary Oldman’s uncanny transformation and the way he brings back to life an icon who has been dead for more than 50 years.
The first movie does a better job of everything this one does rendering the second installment redundant – painless but purposeless.
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that a viewer in search of two hour’s quality entertainment won’t find it here.
Weaknesses aside, it’s a feel-good experience with more to recommend it than the obligatory nostalgia trip associated with half-century old songs.
