Playing With Fire (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Playing With Fire is terrible.  No really it is.  It’s cheap, sloppily made and seems of a quality best described as ‘very direct to video’. Yet… yet I kinda enjoyed it.  See for all it’s faults (and I could list hundreds here) the film made my giggle loads, it entertained my kid on a very long flight and the cast are never giving less than 100%. No seriously you’d think they were in Shakespeare they are trying so hard! It’s throw away stuff for sure but if you are in the right mood then you can probably do worse…

Best Bit: The cast.  They really give it it’s all

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Toy Story 4, Home Alone, Instant Family

6 out of 10 stars
