    Man we need to pull Benedict Cumberbatch out of the MCU poop factory assembly line ASAP if he's this good in movies like this

    Starts off at a leisurely pace--maybe a little too leisurely....wasn't really sure what's being set up until the final few segments where everything pays off tremendously and the casting starts to make more sense.
