Film review: ‘Momentum’ ★★

There’s only so much gravitas a Morgan Freeman voiceover can bring to a project. As Stephen Campanelli’s Momentum (2015) opens, he proclaims: “We are to engineer an event to shape the destiny of our country.” Platitudes and a handful of telephone calls aside, the power-hungry senator has little impact from the wood-panelled corridors of power thereafter. Instead it’s his envoy and hatchet man, the dully named Mr. Washington (James Purefoy), who is sent to Cape Town to recover a disc which contains evidence of the plot.

Momentum is released in the UK on 20th November – read the full review here at CineVue!
