Burnt Review

SHARE:

Foodie movies are far and few between, and generally speaking, the majority of them are stale leftovers that you wouldn't feed to a stray dog. Expect plenty of food puns here people. I've prepared an extra portion or two! Sorry.
While The Hundred Foot Journey is one example of being perfectly edible, for the best food movie you'll ever consume, you need Jon Favreau's Chef. That's a five star experience.

And safe to say, Favreau's masterpiece is still the best restaurant in town (ok ,I'll stop) as Bradley Coopers latest offering, Burnt is something that should have never come out of the kitchen in the first place. Cooper, plays Adam. A chef looking for a few michelin stars and redemption after a bout of booze and substance abuse as well as setting fire to numerous bridges.




While the food looks good (the movie was exec produced by Gordon Fucking Ramsey and the dishes were prepared by Marcus Wareing, a super talented chef and Ramsey alumni) the story and performances leave the whole thing down.
Cooper doesn't look comfortable in this role whatsoever. It's a performance that's dialled in long distance. So far away in fact, that he may as well have been on the moon. His channelling of Gordon Ramsey is overdone to say the least. This is a prime example of a movie he just had to do as part of some studio deal. Sienna Miller, while generally delightful is underused and predictable. 

It's beyond belief how the writer of Easter Promises, Steven Knight, cooked up this concoction. Maybe the idea was good on paper, but director John Wells has made a complete dogs dinner of this one. 
With an underused cast, an uninterested Bradley Cooper and a story that was wrote on the back of a napkin, Burnt is something you definitely don't want to order (ENOUGH!)
