The Exception
« on: April 03, 2019, 09:50:41 AM »
I watched this film on Blu-ray last night with friends. Excellent movie - everyone loved it. It's great to see Christopher Plummer - he does a great job as the Kaiser. Lily James is also excellent. 

Picture - 9
Sound - 8.5
Movie - 9


This is a clean crisp looking Blu-ray on my projector. Sound was good. Overall, if you like WWII period dramas, this is a good one! 

I'm not going to go into the plot - no spoilers to spoil the film - watch it !

I am a fan of interesting WWII flicks. Black Book is another favorite.

Good movie, but the reason to watch it is because of Lily James, who bares it all.

Well, just like Red Sparrow, there are other reasons to watch it ( plot etc. ), but I'll take the nudity as a bonus !

WOW......I am so offended by this statement. (now typing the movie title into Redbox and Amazon Prime to see if it's available) ;)

Actually, I had to look her up. I couldn't remember who she is but after looking, I don't think I have seen anything she has played in.

I had intentions of watching both Baby Driver and Darkest Hour but life has been busy.

Thanks for reminding me about them.
