And lo, there was no end to the strangeness…
Tesla certainly led an interesting life, but it isn’t translated to the screen very well in this effort. I didn’t feel very involved in what otherwise should have been exciting events.
Orson Welles is welcome in his part as J.P Morgan, but the rest of the cast is a little shaky.
The interior sets feel a little theatrical and pre-fabricated, but the exteriors are good. The framing is all very static and a little slow.
Good on-set effects, which is definitely something that you have to nail in a movie like this one. The soundtrack isn’t bad, but I think they could have ramped up the emotional content just to add some excitement.
Not bad, just boring.
I’m no expert about Tesla, so I would be eager to know how historically accurate the film is to real life.
