Cliché's galore in a steaming pile of nonsense
25 October 2015 | by bookadogSee all my reviews

I was hoping for Luther, Sherlock or at the very least some entertainment. Laborious close ups and atmospheric music cannot substitute for a good plot and some tense action. Implausible plot developments and characters changing character every 2o minutes makes this feel like it was written by a 12 year old and that would be unfair to all 12 year old, unless they were actually 8 year old pretending to be 12 year old. Vastly underwhelming and ultimately a waste of everyones time. Such a shame that lead actor Johnny Harris after such a standout performance in This Is England 86 and Fortitude has really hit a low point. I hope Anne-Marie Duff can regain her composure for the upcoming Suffragettes movie. If Luther is reading this, arrest everyone responsible and Sherlock ? please investigate the missing entertainment.
