Usually I show a trailer when providing an opinion on a movie but this movie felt as if I was watching still photographs for over 2 hours. Of course the story of Winston Churchill becoming and leading Great Britain is fascinating but without the images of what is occurring at this time we are not looking at the whole picture and it is sorta (very) bland. Speeches are additions to films but they should not replace the action which is occurring outside. The best part of the film is when Winston Churchill commutes with the people but one scene can’t make up for what is missing. When action and speeches are intertwined just right emotions of the viewers are truly felt otherwise you might as well be watching a documentary or look at still photography.
