2 out of 5 stars

Mr Apple as a Shakespearian hero

How could something which should have been so good turn out, at times, to be so bad? For this geekette, the fault lay in the writing … not bad but there was simply far too much of it! Scene after interminable scene of people discussing / debating / arguing, with little change in tone or pace.

On a positive note, the performances are perfectly fine and there are a few Danny Boyle flourishes to grab your attention. But shaving 30 mins off the 2-hour running time and 30% fewer words may have made for a better cinematic experience.
