Director: Eran Creevy
Starring: Felicity Jones, Nicholas Hoult, Anthony Hopkins, Ben Kingsley.
I feel sorry for Jones and Hoult because I think they’re better than these characters. The characters were just bland and plain. There was no depth or development with them. It was a struggle to like them. I’ve seen both these actors in other films and I know what they’re capable of. This film just didn’t allow them to show off their talents. They’re so much better than this.
The film is enjoyable because there is a lot of action. The storyline could have been stronger as it felt amateurish. There are so many other films out there that follow the same sort of narrative and they’re much better.
Stick to the Fast and Furious films and give this one a miss!
