    This doesn't claim to be anything other than what it is. All out action fun. It's all a bit homoerotic with them prancing around in their pants but good fun nevertheless. Like Zulu but with Spartans and even more shouting.

    ★★½

    This film is clearly not ashamed of it's literary origins but to convert a book to the screen it's not just a case of filming the dialogue. The story is great, the performances are uniformly good and it's filmed well with moments of genuine bravura genius. You just can't escape the feeling you're watching a book being narrated to you though. Ultimately it left me wanting to search out the novel for a more fulfilling experience.

    Tarantino's obsession with the 'N' word reaches it's nadir, this is one of the worst and most offensive films I've ever seen. That probably makes me sound like a miserable old man, well maybe, but QT is an idiot and in desperate need of an editor and a punch in the face.

    I love Christopher Nolan, many of his films in the past ten years have made it to my number one slot for films that year. I'm sorry, but this is a stone cold turkey. In fact, the more and more I think about it, the more I dislike it.

    I'm not bringing any new criticism but the entire script of this film is exposition. There is no interest, no emotion, no humour, no plot, it is literally people standing there…
