It certainly wasn’t in 2022 Christian Bale‘s year as far as movies go. During his appearance as the Gorr the God Butcher in Thor: Love and Thunder was certainly pleasant, unfortunately the overall package was a small letdown. Amsterdam was quite a flop despite the star power of its huge ensemble cast.
The only attempt to save Bale’s year, Netflix’s The light blue eye, does not have a good start – the film seems to fall relatively flat after the first reviews. Critics have shared their thoughts on Twitter, and while they generally appreciate the dark and moody atmosphere, the film fails to captivate until the credits roll.
As of this writing, the film has an extremely average critic rating of 58 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, based on just over 20 reviews. It’s early days, and audiences and critics arriving late to the party might boost the score, but these early reviews certainly sound far from promising.
The film is a 19th-century crime thriller starring Christan Bale and Harry Melling as Detectives Augustus Landor and Edgar Allan Poe, respectively, who form an unlikely duo to solve a grisly murder mystery by expertly removing the victim’s heart from her body.
The light blue eye will have a brief stint in theaters beginning December 23, 2022 before landing on Netflix on January 6, 2023.
