Great film - deserves to be a big hit
11 September 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film.

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.
