"All The King's Men" -- The First Reviews
The first reviews are in for "All The King's Men," the much-delayed remake of the political pot boiler about a Huey Long-like campaigner. The Hollywood Reporter thinks Sean Penn is magnificent, even if the movie he's in can barely contain his performance and is ultimately a mess. Variety just sees a mess and mocks just about every aspect of the film, including wide range of accents among the actors, the score, the costumes, etc. Sounds like a misfire.
