Well, we certainly do worship him! He's not as much a cult as a deity... :mrgreen:

The Church of Isaacsettes! My mother would certainly throw herself at his alter if her arthritis wasn't acting up! She'll just shuffle over, I suppose!

What a moustache!!!! Holy Toledo!

Great reviews! Thank you so much for finding them! I hope the movie comes to North America, although I'm still waiting to see Good!

:D Thanks! I think I found it after I posted here. I cruised through Amazon and it could be quite dangerous for me! There's so many movies I want that I'm sure it'll drain my bank account!

Amazon is dangerous for me LOL...but it's a great site, I've ordered many books and dvds from amazon.com and never had a problem of any kind. It's easy to spend my money online.

A nice review (thanks to Kim):
It's very leisurely in pace and execution, but it's not complacent. It gives us characters to latch onto, a strong story to follow, and Jason Isaacs stealing every scene he's in, as ever. It really rewards the effort you make to catch it in cinemas by maximising the entertainment value of what's an apparently modest effort.

Well, we know he steals every scene but it's nice to read about it.

Angel Tavington wrote:A review from the Guardian:

Stealing the scene is Jason Isaacs, as the Colonel, the two men's gruff employer, sporting a cap, a 'tache of hostile dimensions, and a worrying scar across his throat. He has the disconcerting habit of addressing his subordinates as "mush" (rhymes with "push"), a mannerism I haven't heard for a couple of decades and which made me laugh every time he said it. The Colonel has promised his boys a promotion, work with the grandest names in society: "I've got a couple of Saxe-Coburgs next week: imagine the filth!"

A couple of days ago I watched an old episode of Morse. One of the characters called someone else "mush". That was the second time I'd heard it.
