It is inconceivable that this film could have a magnificent nuanced performance by Ben Kingsley in the midst of Hollywood schlock chase entertainment. The usual mishmash of accents makes the dialogue sound melodramatic and inauthentic. Oscar Isaac has been on a slow descent with a series of by number performances. The promise of Inside LLewyn Davis and A Most Violent Year are long gone. The director Chris Weitz must have spent most of his time making sure Sir Ben would win another Academy Award. Despite Weitz building suspense, the gloss and projecting of scenes fails the higher intent of the film miserably. But even with that caveat, witnessing Kingsley’s master class of acting is worth almost every ounce of Operation Finale.
