    Pretty good . . . pretty, pretty good. You can see the rough potential of what would become the HBO hit series.

    Nolan, as usual, is in fine form as a director. Strong acting throughout. Occasionally the cameos took me out of the film, but oh boy does the brilliant Gary Oldman nail a brief scene as Harry Truman. The shifts from color to black-and-white and across time frames added to a bit of tonal inconsistency. And I’m not sure the “whodunnit” aspect of the final third of the film was a good fit. As a history teacher, I appreciated the great care invested in getting the little details right in the script.

    I went in expecting to be disappointed, but they stuck the landing. Not perfect, but overall a lot of fun. (Too bad it didn’t open like its four predecessors did, with the Paramount logo morphing into the first shot of the opening scene.)
