    An interesting account of the early days of Churchill’s run as PM that gave me an insight into the machinations of Chamberlain after he resigned. It works well as a companion piece to Nolan’s Dunkirk. Being able to directly compare this to  ‘Churchill’, also released recently is an interesting exercise. I preferred Brian Cox’s take on the man rather than Oldman’s. Oldman looked and sounded more like Alfred Hitchcock at times.

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

    Not a great Marvel film but not a bad one either which gives it a headstart on most films. Fairly predictable, slightly too long and a tad preachy in it’s black power message. The main issue is what I call the “Suoerman Conundrum”. When suited up T’Challa is practically invincible so the film had to, very unsubtly, create a weakness. His “kryptonite”, so to speak.  The film has created an interesting change in the technological level of the Marvel world…

    A masterpiece. That is all.
