The Brits Are Coming (M18)
Starring Tim Roth, Uma Thurman, Maggie Q
Directed by James Haslam
Pulp Fiction alums Tim Roth and Uma Thurman are reunited as husband-and-wife grifters on the run from Maggie Q’s trigger-happy crime boss. The couple flee London and find refuge in LA where they plan to steal a jewel from Alice Eve’s bimbo actress.
Parker Posey, Crispin Glover, Stephen Fry and Sofia Vergara are also involved in this painfully toothless, shapeless caper. The actors assembled are top-notch but the director doesn’t seem to know what to do with them.
Roth’s character swears and drinks incessantly, something you’ll be doing too when the end credits roll. That’s if you don’t bail after 30 minutes. (*1/2)
