The Good Liar (2019)

 The Good Liar
(2019) on IMDb

Starring:
Helen Mirren, Ian McKellen, Russell Tovey, and Jim Carter.

Movie Synopsis:
An incredibly talented con man, Roy Courtnay (Ian McKellen), has found his next target. He befriends Betty McLeish (Helen Mirren) who is a wealthy widower. He charms his way into her life and her home while developing feelings for her. This will be one of his most dangerous cons.

 

Overall Thoughts:
I really liked this movie. How could it be bad with Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen? There were some twists I never saw coming and this film was way darker than I anticipated. I appreciated the suspense and the shocking end. Do not take this one at face value. It is not what it seems.

Cast:
Exceptional! It did take me a few minutes to stop thinking about Mr. Carson (Downton Abbey) when Jim Carter was in a scene, but he did a great job distancing himself from that role. Soon I had forgotten all about his prior acting gig.

Script/Editing:
I would have liked a little more background on their pasts, but it probably would have given away too much. There were a few scenes that I thought we unnecessarily bloody but not too extreme.

Special Effects:
Well done. The costumes department did a great job.

Should You Go See This Movie?
Absolutely. It was fun, dark, and surprising. Amazing actors.
