Marlowe Movie Review
The Marlowe movie hits the rock bottom over the fact that even though it has a stellar star cast, but they have not been utilized to their best and hence that comes up as the biggest flaw of the movie. Even Liam Neeson is far from his best with regards to the standards he has set for himself. A crime thriller is marked with the magnitude of suspense it can create among its audience, but the movie has not been able to do so due to its loose script.
In a nutshell, the Marlowe Movie Review but leaves the audience wanting in most counts and even though its efforts were sincere enough.
