The ending is worth the price of the movie ticket! Such a thing as Karma and one of the main characters got that served coldblooded! I left the movie theater still discussing the movie with my girlfriend! Like wow, this person could not stop lying for nothing! Great cast and very entertaining! Winning!
Was looking forward to this movie. It did not disappoint
For all its nasty twists and turns, its fake-outs and flashbacks and pile-up of double-crosses, this story of an elderly con man and the wealthy widow he targets feels fatally devoid of danger. Square, tame and tidy as the London-area house kept by Mirren’s primly elegant, creamy-complexioned septuagenarian, The Good Liar is a work of skill but little spark.
Hoping to be a stylish, witty conman thriller, The Good Liar starts out as an amusing lark but fails to stay ahead of its audience, piling on the ludicrousness until it’s impossible to take the proceedings seriously.
The Good Liar really wants to be either a thriller or a caper. Unfortunately, it has neither the excitement necessary for the former nor the fun required of the latter.
