Saoirse Ronan and Sam Rockwell are our intrepid detectives on the case in “See How They Run,” which begins with the murder of Leo Köpernick by Adrien Brody, a notoriously hated film director who visits London in the late afternoons. in 1950, who was hired to turn “The Mousetrap” Agatha Christie into a Hollywood production. The suspects? Of course the actors, the writers, the producers and everyone involved in the play. But wait, maybe Rockwell’s tormented Inspector Stoppard has something to do with it. And what does a mysterious dinner invitation from the reclusive Agatha Christie herself have to do with it all? Oh, if only Ronan’s over-eager Constable Stalker would stop jumping to conclusions!
We’ve seen this before – now it’s just a matter of seeing how it plays out. And while this kind of predictable recipe is cozy enough, “See How They Run” aims to keep us engaged by poking at the contours of that formula and winking at the audience. “If you’ve seen a whodunit, you’ve seen them all,” Brody’s Köpernick remarked dryly to the audience, before he met his bloody and violent death.
If you’ve read any of the Agatha Christie’s, you’ve definitely seen parts of this movie. “See How They Run” intentionally introduces elements of Christie’s “The Mousetrap” into the film – from the suspect, to the plot twists, to the real-life case on which the play is based – as well as the causal archetype. the author’s work. earnestly love. There’s the narcissistic lead actor (Harris Dickinson, got a blast playing the pig’s head), the headstrong screenwriter (David Oyelowo, stupid and awesome), the big-money theater manager (Ruth Wilson, fierce but little to do), the despised producer (Reece Shearsmith, appropriately belittled), the paranoid producer’s wife (Sian Clifford, a hilarious stuntman), and many others. love or the butler or guide is despised. But not surprisingly, Ronan and Rockwell ran away with the film.
Ronan for a better character to play the last part couldn’t fly off the page, even though she tried her best and delivered the funniest line. Rockwell, however, tries to give depth to his alcoholic, world-weary detective, sporting a dramatic British accent that he hides with mumbled mumbles and a sad expression, cheerless. Together, they’re fun to watch, even if the film occasionally turns itself around sending them through many twists and turns.
