I wasn't quite cunt-struck even with the talent involved. It's too dry for my taste, but not to say there isn't redeemable qualities. The sets, costumes, and performances were all solid, especially with it being a period piece drama. And an entertaining performance from David Tennant, in spite of the slim screen time. However, the sluggish pace ruins any investment I could have with the story and the movie unfortunately follows the period piece drama formula. But seriously, releasing this movie at the same time as 'The Favourite' aka Walk Hard of period dramas, didn't really help. I think being broke is better than being ''woke''.

This latest dramatization of the historical rivalry is beautifully filmed and well acted. Can't say it's anywhere near as entertaining as it should be. THe cast try to liven up the stiff dialogue but only historical fiction purists may find true enjoyment out of this. Nowhere close to being the boring slog as FIRST MAN was but it's getting close.
