Roaring with top quality
Dev Patel gives his best performance yet in Garth Davis’ take on the true story of a child separated from his family and adopted by a Tasmanian couple.
His endearing flick whisks along at a brisk pace and never fails to tug on your emotions.
It’s not as sugary as the trailer suggested and roars with quality. Ben Affleck’s latest directorial effort bombed at the box office, but deserves a chance.
Though far from a vintage crime drama, his tale of Bostonbred gangsters is very watchable throughout.
The cast deliver in spades – especially Chris Cooper’s moral police chief – as sparks fly and guns fire.
