CGiii Comment

Nothing actually happens for the first hour - just too much shouting and yelling - and it does get on your tits after a while.

The cruelty and bullying are so over-the-top that the predictable happens and when it does it is an anti-climax - in all respects.

Most of the actors have the BBC's received pronunciation which renders them into caricatures.

It's an overly long, laborious and deafening slog.
