Churchill

Terri - AV December 29, 2017

"Check our catalog!"

The movie Churchill starring Brian Cox doesn’t do its subject justice. I considered that perhaps I didn’t like the movie because it demolished my image of Churchill as the great man and leader that he was. However, I simply don’t accept the movie’s depiction of the man; he could not have continued to have the influence he did if he was the doddering has-been the movie portrayed. But it isn’t just the assailing of Churchill’s character that makes the picture a dud; it is so slow-moving that even with the actors’ shouting, it was a snoozer to everyone in our living room. The music was more interesting than the action, and my musician daughter noted that even the music was dull. Odd camera angles attempted to add to the interest, but mostly made the scenes odd. My only recommendation regarding this movie is that you don’t waste your time seeing it. The man himself was so entertaining that historical footage is much more interesting than this dull dramatization has made him. Overall rating: D-
