    Clue 1985

    ★★★ Watched 05 Feb, 2016

    ★★★★★ Watched 08 Jan, 2013 2

    An incredible movie in nearly all accepts. A stellar soundtrack combine with a film noir style to create a perfectly realized dark world. An interesting plot with a hint of morality, make the film more than a big brash action movie. Harrison Ford gives a layered performance to bring a likeable but rough character to the screen.
