Injects some far-fetched fun into a light-hearted romp
This article is from 2010.
This young, enthusiastic company injects some far-fetched fun into a light-hearted romp about the war on terror, in a noughties reimagining of the original novel by GK Chesterton. A cheeky wink to the left-not-knowing-what-the-right-hand’s doing is played out to decent comedy effect as our do-gooder hero is enticed into the world of counter-terrorism, only to discover that the ‘days of the week’ anarchists he’s been sent in to spy on aren’t quite what they seem.
