Message from the King (2016).
If I hadn’t have watched the last five minutes of this movie, with the totally unnecessary and frankly bewildering ‘sting’ at the end, I’d have thoroughly enjoyed this.
As it stands, I guess you can already tell that I did foolishly watch all of the movie, and am quite bitter about it. Not since The Last Samurai (in the Time Before Reviews Began) have I regretted watching the end of the movie so much.
Anyway. If I pretend the last five minutes didn’t occur (and thusly made the main character a suddenly unreliable one), I really did enjoy the movie. It was a lot like The Limey (also from the Time Before Reviews Began) which was a personal favourite for many years.
