In this faithful, very watchable US remake of 2011 French box-office hit Untouchable, Bryan Cranston and comedian Kevin Hart take on the real-life roles of a millionaire author left quadriplegic by a paragliding accident, and the black ex-con who is haphazardly hired as his full-time carer. Predictably, a genuine bond begins to develop between the chalk-and-cheese duo.  Also starring Nicole Kidman.

For more information, including a full cast list and reviews, go to:


Cranston delivers a performance full of life and emotion and the actor must be commended for his execution of a role that places so much emphasis on facial expression alone. His onscreen partner Kevin Hart also shows the audience his versatile range of acting abilities, playing a more purposeful and regretful Dell in and around his trademark moments of humour. Nicole Kidman also offers a splash of dignity and integrity to the story, bringing her own narrative arc to the fold and counteracting Hart in an evident coming together of two very different worlds.”  The Upcoming

It doesn’t do anything different from the original, but the upside to The Upside is two strong, winning performances that keep you going down a well worn path.”  Empire
