Three­quel fails to thrill

The law of di­min­ish­ing re­turns hits the pop­u­lar an­i­mated fran­chise as not even the Min­ions can save this lazy third out­ing.

A dop­pel­ganger-led sto­ry­line does lead to Steve Carell pro­vid­ing twice the fun.

But an over­load of sub­plots fail to en­gage and the en­ergy so preva­lent in pre­vi­ous en­tries is sorely lack­ing. When word leaked of a TV take on the cult sci-fi-west­ern mashup, many eyes were rolled.

How­ever, Westworld not only rates as one of last year’s finest shows, but one of the best in decades. To go too much into the plot would risk giv­ing away a mul­ti­tude of thrilling twists and turns, per­formed by a ter­rific cast.
