Nevertheless, I am willing to take a punt on Pattison in this movie. The character of Steven Stelfox is a rampant racist and misogynistic prick, which means I’m surprised any actor relying on their likability for movie roles would dare tackle. I hope they don’t water-down the source material as means of not tarnishing Pattison’s image. Likewise, I hope they don’t make Pattison carry out a performance he’s not capable of executing and what we’re left with is a Fisher-Price adaptation of a book that needed to be translated to film by talent with balls.
