Clever fun
5 April 2020 | by rombles-92637See all my reviews

I saw this in the cinema and loved it, although I remember being struck by one line which just didn't sit right with me at the time. I've just watched the DVD, and that line makes sense now - I must have just not heard it properly the first time. So, with that resolved, we are left with a clever, original film with more twists than.... well, not a tornado, let's go for the cyclone which anchors the film. Still lots of twists and turns in one of those. Well written, well made, and well worth taking the time to watch. I convinced my son to watch it with me - he tends not to trust my recommendations - but he was really impressed and enjoyed it too!
