    The movie starts out decent but becomes fairly predictable and bland by the end.

    The Good Liar, starring Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen, were outstand performances worthy of five stars if not for a truly terrible finale that ruined the movie.

    This movie was boring and predictable from the start and progressed into being a grossly over emphasized portrayal of a minor's sexual assault. Both the directors were men, so I don't know why they thought they should tackle the issue of women being sexually assaulted, but they did, and it unsurprisingly fails to be tasteful or to give the victim any sort of depth or complexity in her character AT ALL. Also who tf still makes nazi movies? Clearly negative thought was put into this movie and for the gratuitous assault scene alone it deserves 0 stars.

    Kind of a stretch to think they'd share money that easily, but what do I know. You knew from the title she was playing him, so kinda ruined the suspense for me.

    4 and a half out of 5. The Good Liar is a suspense driven, mind blowing, story with a great performance by Mirren. It's really something.

    Satisfying end! Honestly went in expecting very little more than the standard con artist plot and possibly a double cross on account of Helen Mirren and the way the trailer was cut. But this was good, definitely worth a watch.

    Boring for 1 hr. 40 mins., then a convoluted, preposterous ending explanation seals the deal. Not worth the time.

    Wow. What a plot! Takes a little patience in the beginning, but the payoff is fantastic. Absolute Must See. Unexpected fabulous story (Ian & Helen are expectedly fabulous). Will watch again. And again.

    Honestly I got pretty bored with the movie in the early 2nd act but I am glad I stuck with it because it definitely went left and surprised me in the end.
