Bad, worse, worst
30 July 2012 | by (Moscow) – See all my reviews

I can only assume that the authors were deeply depressed when they were creating this... stuff. But it still doesn't explain how we can possibly have BBC series with totally none funny scene in it. It's only darkness, everything is so hopeless that you're stopping believing those people are real. And then, a film that has no positive characters at all? You don't feel like sympathizing to any of them. All they do is lie, cheat, deceive, force and, easily, kill. Oh yes, and shout. All the time. Was it a kind of anti-Utopia? I don't know. But it could be better... mainly if it weren't there at all. I'm giving it three stars, one for Eccleston, one for Dervla and another one for camera work.
