Critic Reviews for The Current War
The Current War seems to have suffered from its tumultuous production history. Or, just maybe, it was always destined to be this ungainly.
The film's release was duly paused and in the two years since there have been reshoots, five new scenes added and ten minutes cut from the original Toronto version. It's still a dirge. It's flat and repetitive.
Given the subject matter, it's a disappointingly unstimulating affair.
So now the film deserves to be considered in its own right, all taint removed. And? It's still a turkey.
The Current War heaves itself around... but still fails to illuminate its subject at all well - squinting at footnotes, and weirdly failing to see the wood for the trees.
