I think it was down to the realism in both cases which gave the Chernobyl the edge but ironically detracted from Dark Waters edge due to the period of time it encompasses and the type of affair it was.. perhaps the Du Pont case being a long drawn out affair would probably have more edge as a TV series?I'm glad you mentioned Chernobyl, Cas. Since seeing Dark Waters I had a feeling there was a missing 'edge' from it I couldn't put my finger on; and Chernobyl had exactly that.
Actually the more ai think on it... Scarlett Johansson, Chris Pratt, Andy Serkis, Josh Brolin, Benedict Cumberbatch... there are quite a few and of course old Nick Fury himself has had a great career outside of MCUArguably RDJ has albeit the MCU help resurrect a career which was stalling.
I would agree with this. Started strong and by end kinda just wanted it to be finished with. I did enjoy it but not one I will ever watch again.I enjoyed this but found it a bit sagging and also lacked an overriding urgency, even though it's an ongoing and very real world time sensitive plight for its victims - that by degree, includes us all. To the latter point, you would expect it to have drawn the viewer in much more but it doesn't and instead got bogged down in explanation and convention.
Having seen Ruffalo and the actual lawyer involved on Graham Norton, I was struck again at the lack of outrage from the audience but more of a polite gasp with an oh dear and that's ultimately what this leaves you with.
