The Fable (2019) NYAFF 2019
Fish out of water action film has some great action sequences and some really good laughs making it a wonderful popcorn film. Unfortunately the film is also oddly paced. Running a couple of minutes over two hours the film has a leisurely pacing which somehow lessens the excitement. I never felt there was any real danger because the film never made me feel there was need to rush. I found it strange to watch the action take place, enjoy it but feel no urgency.
Reservations aside this is a good, if slightly disposable action film.
THE FABLE will also play at Fantaia in Montreal later this month
