The ending makes this special. The evocative score bolsters. Blanchett and Mara compel.
BURN BURN BURN [embargo]
A TALE OF THREE CITIES ★☆☆☆☆
Clunky, syrupy telling, based on Jackie Chan's parents. Even Tang Wei and MAD DETECTIVE's Ching Wan Tau can't rescue.
Solid chase movie with a political bent, but is far from '71 and APOCALYPTO. Woodkid's score aids.
