Operation Mincemeat

Operation Mincemeat ★½

The core story at the heart of this exceptionally, overly polite historical drama remains fascinating. I remember vividly how taken I was with it when I watched "The Man Who Never Was" on TV as a kid. But in this somnambulant new adaptation that storyline is drowned out by wave upon wave of requisite prestige drama clichés. Colin Firth, in particular, phones in his performance.
