Well, I loved it! Could have had more Damien, but that was the only downside for me (after all

I thought Nicholas Hoult was good (normally I'm not a fan) and Tom Holland average (ditto comment about Hoult) but the rest of the cast were brilliant.

A really gripping story. For me, Edison came over as a nasty piece of work, much preferred Westinghouse - but that is how we were supposed to see it, I think.

yay You've seen it at last Ellie! Great to read your thoughts, thanks for sharing and for voting in the poll! 


Yes, more Damien would always be a good thing!
When we were originally told his role was more or less 'blink and miss it' though, I was happily surprised how much Damien was in it in the end! I think it's a good 5 -6 minute chunk, and not much difference to some of the other characters.

Totally agree about Edison and Westinghouse, easier to admire the latter who seemed to want to do the right thing... this came across to me most all the times he tried to speak with Edison, human to human.. and all the times Edison avoided that. And how he, in the scenes with Damien as his lawyer Bourke Cockran, resisted resorting to any underhand means as far as he could.

Edison's behaviour was hard to respect, worst of all was his electric chair set up and denial..and lying in the courtroom, his whole arrogance. His genius could be admired, his personal story gained him a smidgeon of sympathy - through Mary's story (Tuppence Middleton) and his relationship with her and their children, I felt. Tesla is a fascinating character and would loved to have seen more on him.
