    ★★★

    A combination of some cast members taking their job very seriously and some really having fun with their roles - Hackman, Hunter, Busey and Brimley are having a brilliant time.

    It's enjoyable and quite grown-up without having much of the violence, sex and bad language that normally comes with grown-up movies.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    At times amusing, occasionally fun, momentarily clever and quite charming film is more-or-less ruined by the plot twist. The nonsense of the bumbling protagonist FBI agent being the genius pulling the strings behind the scenes all along is fucking ridiculous. I will give a nod toward Woody Harrelson though... he's thoroughly having fun with his role.

    Blimey. I'd heard only good things about this and, boy, it didn't disappoint. Maybe my favourite film from the last three or four years. The subject matter, style and production design are right up my street. It paints a conceivable future and shows its potential pitfalls at the same time as making it pretty appealing. Despite this incredibly cautionary tale, I found myself wanting a disembodied Scarlett Johansson in my phone (who wouldn't, right?).

    My only thought that might be…

    The ride of the Rohirrim... totally amazing.
