    Mostly very silly- the decent cast do their best with the dialogue but it’s a real effort having to explain the situation constantly. The premise is interesting but the execution is full of holes. Diverting nonsense.

    A slight return to form that seems to run away with itself by the end, still his best since Sightseers, underplayed with just enough humour to offset the increasingly disturbing sights and sounds.

    It's the first time I've watched and considered that the fantasy aspect is all in her head, god that makes it sad. Will have to add the other half to make it a fully 5 star film now.

    The voice over had me worried about a second in and it didn't get any better. A very shallow portrayal of the people, the times and the environment they lived in. Hardy is as watchable as ever, his Ronnie is tragi - comic, his Reggie is solid with hints of menace but there's never any hint of what has made them and what continues to make them like this. Frances' character is labelled as "vulnerable" early on with nothing else…
