Entertainmentwise: “Haywire”, “J.Edgar”, “W.E.” reviews

HAYWIRE

“From the most unique of directors comes an occasionally enjoyable but overall quite average action- thriller”

J. EDGAR

“Eastwood’s vast experience and yet another immense performance from DiCaprio mean this ambitious project is largely a success.”

“W.E.”

“Whilst not a terrible film, it’s hard to recommend something that is only half-interesting.”

THE DARKEST HOUR

“While you might not tear your eyes out at it, ‘The Darkest Hour’ gives you very little for your money.”
