Starts and ends well, just a shame about the rest of it.
- Where the Truth Lies review by CP Customer
After a good start (well the first few minutes were) I'm affraid this film gets rather dull quite quickly.
It's told via a series of interviews set in the 70's with Firth and Bacon flashing back to events in the 50's by a journalist who idolised the pair as a child.Colin Firth and Kevin Bacon themselves play a "popular" fictional 50's tv duo rather in the mould of Ant & Dec. Unfortunately whether you like Ant & Dec or not you can't deny there is a chemistry there, one I'm sorry to say was sadly lacking in the Firth / Bacon version.
I like both Colin Firth and Kevin Bacon as actors and have enjoyed several other films I've seen them in but together in these roles I'm affraid it just didn't work for me.
I would've given this 1 star were it not for the fact that this picks up right at the end leaving you on a relative high. Disapointing.
