4.5 So-so drama. emperor10 | 26/08/2013 | See all emperor10's reviews (275) I only watched this recently,and although it had its good points (some of the acting was well done) there were a few issues for me.Firstly,the accents.Majority of the actors decide to use clipped upper class English,although a fvew do decide to have German accents.The Scottish Carlyle,for some reason,has decided to do his best Ross Kemp impression. Then there is Peter o'Toole's ridiculous padded suits,to make him,and failing,to look like the chubby President Hindenburg.Then there is Robert Carlyle himself.His performnce (dodgy accent aside) is quite good.The problem with him,is he looks nothing like Hitler,despite the bog standard theatrical bog standard glued on tash.In fact,he always likes like he could do with being fed a bit more,to plump him up a little. (in some scenes,he looks like a boy dressing up in his dad's suits). Certainly not a bad drama, but there are better.
