    Good not great.
    For all the fanfare behind this movie it was always going to be hard to live up to the hype and sadly it doesn't. Boseman and Jordan both provide strong performances. It's a visually stunning movie.
    But when it comes to the crunch, it's nothing more than a generic super hero movie. We were promised we'd be wowed but ultimately there is nothing new here.
    Marvel is usually very clever with the comedy element in their movies…

    ★★★★★

    Emotional, thought provoking, brutally honest and absolutely incredible.
    A documentary that digs deep into the heart and soul of Liverpool Football Club's greatest ever servant. From his humble upbringing in Glasgow, to his unparalleled footballing success both as a player and manager, to the tradegy of Hillsborough that almost broke him.
    I have no problem in admitting that I shed tears watching my footballing idol recount the horrors that he witnessed. The raw emotion is there for everyone to see.
    This is an absolute must watch for every single Liverpool fan. Seeing King Kenny laid bare is hard to watch but riveting.

    Should have been great but for me was just very good. Everything pointed towards a home run, it fell short!! Streep and Hanks are excellent, as they generally are. The tension is there but it wasn't enough and at times I felt the movie dragged. Will it win awards? Yes probably but more to do with the megastar names than the movie itself. Worth a viewing but don't expect to be wowed.

    What an amazing movie!! Fully deserving of every award that comes it's way. There isn't one bad performance. McDormand, Rockwell & Harrelson are all exceptional. It's rare that a movie can hit the perfect balance of drama, heartbreak & comedy but this certainly nails all three with aplomb. It's a definite must watch in my opinion.
