Walk when Ben does!
31 August 2015 | by khunkrumarkSee all my reviews

Stick around for the first few minutes to watch a master class in acting from Ben Kingsley... When he leaves so should you.

What could have been a brilliant 'Total Recall' type thriller is just another soap opera with blubbering women, needy kids and ridiculous car chases. It's horrible to watch.

But the single biggest gaff in this celluloid effluence is the fact that the ruthless businessman (Kingsley) suffers a massive personality transplant after his 'shedding' and turns into a touchy-feely pansy.

The second biggest (and even more painful to watch) gaff is hiring a child who can't act. Yeah, sorry kid... you ain't gonna make it in the talkies.

But the best line in the movie happens about eight minutes in when the old dying Kingsley is trying to make a connection with his daughter who runs some kind of NGO in the city.

"This isn't work. It's a bunch of children throwing a tantrum!"

Just brilliant... and so true!

Three stars out of ten... all three for Ben Kingsley.
