Not recommended. The most important question reviewers at CinemaPointer are obligated to ask their conscience whilst reviewing a movie is: “Will you recommend this to your family members?”. If the answer returned is a “No”, that movie cannot not be recommended. Sadly, ‘The Herbert Macaulay Affair’ returned a “No!”
While the producers of ‘The Herbert Macaulay Affair’ must get an “A” for effort, especially in terms of setting, costumes and props, they earned themselves a Mighty Big “F” for failing to create the Magic, the flutter and the spark great movies create in the hearts and minds of their audience.
Instead, the producers serve up a cold turkey. No sauce. No salt. Crippled by mechanical transitions, robotic acting, terrible lack of chemistry and flimsy story telling, ‘The Herbert Macaulay Affair’ looks good but is very hard to eat. Worst part is; the desperately annoying music that plays continuously throughout, making dialogue hard-to-hear and in many cases downright inaudible.
