    The cinematic profile of Thomas Edison's electrifyingly groundbreaking achievement is like showcasing something new from grasped positive intentions to needed improvement of rounding the fulfillment of its artistic potential considering its initial version before the directorial revision. Even though the originally released version is apparently inaccessible whilst defined by the negative reception that has provoked this very cut with sensed improvements without exactly edited placements, the artistically licensed film find better acceptance for what it currently is even though there are still some kinks that still need to be perfected, especially in the writing over whatever wisdom complicates moral issues albeit the competitiveness. But from what we were finally given with a finalizing okay, it is entertaining nonetheless by the nice cast's performances, particularly Cumberbatch accurately depicting the inventor alongside Shannon as his competitor under a political-like light and Holland in a mesmerizing role of matured growth.

    3 stars, but close to 3.5. It has a few historical inaccuracies, but it has a good rhythm and editing. It is entertaining and with a good sense of the show.

    Фильм очень атмосферный. Он подойдёт не всем. Драма присутствует. Актёрская игра хорошая. Сюжет интересный, но не захватывающий. Иногда зависает процесс. Смотреть снова не буду.

    What annoys me the most is the wasted potential. It has great performances and well written dialogue. However it sometimes feels the DP and editors were high, with a normal conversation scene being shot with 20 different angles choppily and randomly stitched together. The pacing is also all over the place. This could of been really good

    I think it's brilliant acting from the main two actors that gives this film some vigour. It would otherwise have been quite a difficult film to digest.

    A thriller. I was so into this movie. Brilliantly done. I don’t own a lot of movies but I will be owning this one. A trip into the veins of Americana.

    All this does is drop a bunch of historical facts in a very typical period drama with no real chemistry between these competitors. Not gonna lie, I just wanted to see a brooding Michael Shannon with a nice mustache. It wasn't worth it.
