    I feel like running a high-stakes private poker game and then being shocked that you’ve attracted a host of shady characters is like laying an outdoor table in the height of summer with open pots of jam and syrup, and being shocked when the wasps come buzzing.

    I did not enjoy this very much. Too much shadiness and not enough justification or responsibility. Idris Elba’s American accent is always off juuuust enough to annoy me a little and take me…

    Like many, I imagine, I audibly said β€˜what the ****?’ as the film ended and the credits started to roll.Β And I admit my immediate thoughts were,Β β€˜what did I just watch?’ and simply, β€˜I don’t get it...’.
    I was ready to write the film off as an oddball that just wasn’t very good. But sometimes it takes reading others’ reviews and opinions to begin to place and understand a piece of creative work, whatever it may be. This was the case…
