confusing, could have been better if things were explained better

Great cast, but post-production seemed to have cut out like 10 years of history 😂 (1890-1900)

The director’s cut of The Current War moves at a faster pace than the original, the characters are better fleshed out, and the drama is more focused where it needs to be. The new cut has elevated the film from mediocre to interesting.

The Current War is a fascinating story, badly told.

It speaks the language of climbers everywhere, but in the process reduces its very real historical innovators to two peevish regional managers in a sniping session, a dry duel set in the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
