The Two Popes is a two-hour slog and predictable bio-pic that refuses to enlighten us. I had high hopes as the film began with a bang up opening as the mechanism for electing a pope was portrayed. But as the focal point delved into the relationship between Anthony Hopkins (Pope Benedict) and Jonathan Pryce (future Pope Francis), a dreary flat and surface only writing/direction took hold. Hopkins and Pryce do their best to keep us engaged but they are undone as the film drags to an emotionless ending. Pryce is the key reason for seeing this film but unfortunately his performance becomes one-note. A few moments of humor fail to make the “Two Popes” human.
