The Questionable ShredderReviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 February 2018

Two and a bit stars

Pretty good production values, well shot and cast is good, although Matt Damon is completely wasted in that role.

But......

A plot full of holes, vast leaps and things that are wholly illogical, especially in the final scenes which feel like they could not get to the ending they wanted..

Pool spoiler

The pool death scene really annoyed me. It's such rubbish
1. The breaker would have shorted the fuse
2. On a filament the quicker route to earth would be through the water to the other side of the filament 2mms away so rest of the water wouldn't be dangerous
3. With such modern technology like remote control they would have the protection making that impossible
4. The light would have made much more of a bright spark and would have been noticeable in the dark

It is not an easy to watch film but the effort was worth it

Had to watch it twice to work out all the plotlines and characters. It is not an easy to watch film but the effort was worth it. I was left with an understanding of how messy m.east politics can be together the absence of any morality in some of the situations.

Disjointed and disappointing
Verified purchase
It didn't quite make a lot of sense. It was well acted and has a great cast but it just didn't make any sense.

Yes I really enjoyed it. You can normally tell a few minutes in whether you like a film or not, but this one held my attention. Was brilliant!

one for the bottom drawer.

Looked like a good film from the start but it was too drawn out and got boring. Hardly any real action.
