MOVIE REVIEW

Director Dominic Cooke’s last film was On Chesil Beach, a movie so dull I couldn’t sit through the whole thing. Writer Tom O’Conner’s? The Hitman’s Bodyguard, a movie that I found instantly forgettable. What a difference a few years makes. These two men have come together to create The Courier, a splendidly engrossing spy thriller powered by a head-turning performance by Benedict Cumberbatch. Full movie review »
