It looks glossy and slick enough, with warm ARRI ALEXA captured cinematography, but the script is terribly underwritten and Ford and Oldman seem to have a bet on as to who can out-bad the other. Hemsworth is good but his role is like weak orange squash; inoffensive but not very satisfying.
A note on the viewing: HD. 2K. SVoD.
Another candidate for Best Film of 2014. A strange, surreal, intoxicating combination of Drive, Stoker and The Exorcist, with echoes of The Bourne Identity. And yes, all those can co-exist and still work. Dan Stevens is also incredible, as is the pounding soundtrack.
A note on the viewing: Digital Cinema. 2K.
Although it's not the masterpiece some claim it to be, the breathless originality and vibrant performances of the film carry it through.
A note on the viewing: Watched on a 40" widescreen HD television on Blu-ray disc in full 1080p high definition. Fox's BD release isn't great. Image quality is unpredictable. I suspect it was transferred from an old or poor quality source.
