I think The Good Liar is going to be one of those films that you with either like it a lot or dislike it a little. Some are comparing the Bill Condon film to mysteries of Alfred Hitchcock while others are not so impressed. One thing that just about everybody agrees on is that the film makes for a good excuse to see two cinematic greats play off of each other.
Instead of a sequel, the folks at Pixar and Disney decided to go the prequel route to explore how these two oddballs met in the first place and the result is pretty favorable. There’s no re-hashing here, it’s a whole new story with familiar friends. Unlike other “origin” stories, this one is fun to sit through.
