Daniel Espinosa News

It happens more often than it should: A cast of sterling actors is assembled for a movie that doesn’t come close to equaling the sum of its parts. And so it goes with director Daniel Espinosa’s dreary Soviet-era serial killer thriller Child 44. I use the term thriller...C-

Review: 'Child 44' Starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman And Joel Kinnaman On paper, "Child 44" seems like it would not be just a great film, but perhaps end up being one of the very best films of the year. It stars the wonderful Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace and Joel Kinnaman, working from a script by Richard Price (adapting a best-selling novel by Tom Rob Smith) and under the direction of buzzed-about Swedish director Daniel Espinosa. The plot is enticing, too: it's a based-on-a-true-story murder mystery that takes place in Stalinist Russia, a nation state so perfect that, at least politically, murder simply cannot exist.

A Soviet-era slog through crime and corruption, painted in the grim, dim shades of muck, blood, moss and bark, director Daniel Espinosa’s “Child 44” turns a best-selling period-piece procedural into a slow, tedious thriller almost totally devoid of thrills.
