Trivia

The cigarettes smoked in the film (particularly by Tommy) were specially made-for-filming fake cigarettes. At the TIFF screening, director Pete Travis joked that Riz Ahmed was sick whenever he had to smoke them, in which case Travis would then make him smoke another one for good measure. See more »

Incomprehensible
11 May 2017 | by rick-morgan9063See all my reviews

There appears to be something wrong with the sound mixing, perhaps a post production goof but this film is very hard to follow as the dialogue is lost in the background noise.

I might add that I am both British and used to London and regional brit accents, yet I still struggled, In the interests of full disclosure, I never made it to the end of the film due to said issues, so my low score reflects my dissatisfaction with the audio quality.
