    Longford is never less than gripping. But it unconsciously apes the moral myopia that afflicts its protagonist.

Jack C.'s an imbecile, and that's clear from the contradictory comments in his idiotic review. He criticizes Samantha Morton for being "comatose" and then criticizes Andy Serkis for being too charismatic. Perhaps he would have preferred if Samantha Morton had been too charismatic and Andy Serkis had been "comatose." Either way, his review cancels itself out and proves that he is a mindless fool which the great "Longford" was wasted on. If you are going to leave user comments on the metacritic forum, it is essential that you mustn't have been lobotomized first. Full Review »
