Steven Spielberg gives us an electric, exicting and visually stunning glimpse into the near future, breathing fresh life into videogame movies and Macguffin movies. This is Spielberg going back to doing the type of films we love him for – old school Spielberg doing a modern film, with non-stop action, fun and an exhaustive list of pop culture references that’ll make repeated viewings a consistent delight.
With excellent writing, directing and cinematography, and emotional and realistic WWII London is brought to life, supported by an excellent cast. This is all topped off by an incredibly transformed Gary Oldman, fully evoking Churchill and giving us the performance of a lifetime. A big V for victory!
