Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Stuber has a nice central idea – a temporally blinded cop being driven by an Uber driver called Stu whilst investigating a case – but be it the poor chemistry between the two leads or the pretty pedestrian script, the film fails to deliver. Even the usually reliable Kumail Nanjiani seems to be phoning it in and Dave Bautista never seems that comfortable with the role. It has a few nice moments and rustled up a couple or laughs but overall in a year packed with some pretty entertaining films, Stuber just doesn’t grab you. Shame.
