Some script issues are ultimately overshadowed by beautiful cinematography and a great central performance
16 April 2018 | by joelwatchesmoviesSee all my reviews

The Christian jargon often comes off as a little wooden; maybe it's because a lot of it feels like it would've had to be indoctrinated (Carl's reasoning at the heresy trial spoke well to this), but the progressive theology is a bit ham-fisted too. Ejiofor is excellent though, as an imperfect man wrestling with tradition, conviction, and consequences, and along with beautiful cinematography and a solid score this makes for a number of powerful scenes that overshadow any kinks in the script.
