This is a formula movie but Gilroy is no hack. He hits the expected beats but with more colour and depth than you expect.

Roman is a fantastic character, and Washington's high-wire performance is one of his most daring and compelling.

Its depiction of weary activism, both lost and renewed, is well-suited to our dark times.

It's not a role we're used to seeing Washington play... but he's never been better.

Denzel Washington gives a terrifically off-kilter performance in this fascinating and flawed character study that frustratingly can't meld all its ambitions into a coherent and satisfying whole.

Unfortunately, something at the centre just doesn't hold, and it flies apart over the course of 133 minutes into confusing shards of plot, legalese-heavy monologues and ... a touch of soggy sentimentality in the home stretch.

It's a movie that could have packed an emotional punch and considered the cost of pursuing purity, but instead it settles for schmaltz.
