Not great - The Current War review by PC

Spoiler Alert
20/11/2019

Disappointing film with little to no drama. Paints Edison in a bad light, one wonders how much of that is true. Most of the people were rather one dimensional. Give it a miss.

Rather Dull - The Current War review by AA

I originally had great expectations for this film, but reading an earlier review in a magazine at the Dentist raised the warning signs and unfortunately they were right.  The tragedy is with such a pool of acting talent there efforts were wasted.
