Not an Earthquake, Just Julius Rollin’ Over: Hail, Caesar

Rotten Tomatoes, are you kidding me? The collection of critics who averaged higher than a 75% should have their opine licenses revoked.

Hail, Caesar was an utter bore. The trailer may look cute, but the film as a whole has no solid story nor characterization. Remember the halcyon Coen Brohters Days? In Big Lebowski, all character meant something, from Philip Seymor Hoffman to Steve Buschemi.

The most lively section of Hail Caesar was the dancing scene with Channing Tatum. Two hours of just outtakes from that piece would have been more entertaining. Ralph Fiennes and Tilda Swinton deserve honorable mentions, at least their characters were genuinely comical on a teensy minute scale.
