I can't help but think this role would be better served by someone 5 years older and 2 feet taller BUT Radcliffe does a nice job of filling the role. His outbursts whenever he felt about to get caught always felt like a flash of brilliance.
On the whole, a fairly disturbing film if you think about it in the context that these people actually exist and that our current US political climate is probably fanning their flames.
This movie continued to confirm for me that I don't think much of Bryan Singer. He's not bad but he's not particularly distinct either. This results in a movie that is funny, action-packed and just a tiny bit flat. That's not really a complaint. It's fun to watch and then you'll likely forget about it.
If I were a more eloquent individual I could wax on about how powerful and important this movie is. The story of such a huge dissent told while it is happening is a bit unreal. I wish there were some uplifting message at the end about governments reigning it in but I saw none.
Must see for anyone. Period.
Chris Gethrad makes a comment mid-way through the movie about how his improv is his secret against the world that thinks he's a loser. It's poignant and pretty much the anchor of the whole movie. It's worth the price of admission just for that one line.
Great ensemble cast. Nailed it. It's not a perfect film but it's a damn fine good one.
