A Cock and Bull Story (2005)
Really is a load of Cock
I'm a huge fan of both Coogan and Brydon. Inspired by their spontaneously funny interviews promoting this film, I gathered a few friends and went off to the big screen to view. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT. Laugh out loud funny? Mildy amusing in only two places does not warrant a comedy label. This is a protracted, painful and just plan boring movie. Coogan and Brydon have so much more to offer, I'd have rather watched the two of them ad-lib over a pint. Half the party viewing with me fell asleep and I was left feeling like an idiot for recommending such drivel. Don't WASTE YOUR TIME. This is overstuffed pompous drivel at its worst. Coogan's foray onto the big movie screen has not been exactly successful- but at least his previous attempts were watchable. I want the 2hrs I wasted watching this back. AVOID.
Only hardcore fans of Garner should bother
After Daredevil I was interested to seeing the character development of Elektra in her own movie. To say I was disappointed, was an understatement. Too much is left for assumption, even as an old comic book fan, I found it confusing; this film obviously relies on you knowing the Frank Miller books. With the current trend for comic adaptations and the efforts they make to retell even the most well known and loved stories (Spiderman, Hulk), the lack of effort to explain who how and what, was lazy and left you scratching your head.
The action pieces are fairly entertaining and Jennifer Garner looks powerful and credible, but the result is that she is the only real reason to want to watch this film. Rent Alias instead.
