Rob Walker – 2000
Circus is a well made British thriller which has all the elements to be a good thriller – except the script. A better storyline was badly needed to make this work. The soundtrack is awful as well – it’s way too loud.
John Hannah and Famke Janssen make for engaging leads but the story here is too far fetched and much too over-blown. Rob Walker’s film features a very strange supporting cast – like it was picked out of a hat at random: Peter Stormare, Brian Conley, Fred Ward, Eddie Izzard…and Christopher Biggins (!).
Circus is a movie filled with wasted potential. It’s not worth your time.
