The King ★★

The Outlaw King at least had the decency to open with an awesomely overdirected David Mackenzie oner; this is just dull, and Pattinson's fleeting efforts to make it interesting belong in a far stranger movie. I wrote off War Machine off as a fluke at the time, but the inconsequentiality of Michôd's Netflix productions is really started to harsh my fondness for The Rover.
