"The IMDb Show" Thanksgiving special: Alan Tudyk ranks his top five droids of all time, we track down the cast of Roman J. Israel, Esq., and we share our favorite Thanksgiving TV episodes with memorable sitcom families.
There is real chemistry between Bill Nighy and Daniel Mays. Nighy is electrifying as ever. Most of the supporting cast are great. It has a gloomy atmosphere and the music hall setting works well (albeit a music hall with lots of music and absolutely zero musicians!).
Its not overly gory - this is a good thing as its the plot and character interplay that is strong here.
The ye olde London Town setting is well done.
The story moves along as quite a pace with red herrings and twists galore.
We guessed whodunit 2/3 of the way through - but it was an entertaining ride nonetheless.
This film is a cut above much of the generic and formulaic Hollywood fare we are fed these days.
Go see it quickly while its still in cinemas - its not nearly as big a hit as it deserves to be.
