Mindhorn follows the story of Richard Thorncroft, a disgraced and out of work actor of the Cult Classic 90's action show Mindhorn. Unable to shake of his past role however comes in handy as he is brought in by the police to help on a murder case involving a trouble man who calls himself The Kestrel, a killer who will only speak to Mindhorn. Returning to the Isle of Man, and revisiting he past, opens up old wounds for Richard but can he pick up the pieces while trying to piggyback of the PR of a murder case?
Now I found Mindhorn pretty funny, this is my kind of humour and it reminds me of the comedies I grew up with, but this is also where the film may not connect with a younger audience. I loved the 90's feel of the film, the characters were well rounded and most of the comedic moments worked perfectly. Russell Tovey (of Gavin and Stacey fame) is very funny as The Kestral only really competing with Simon Farnaby's Clive for the funniest character in the film. I loved the scene with the drunken images drawn on Clives car, but this does match my childish humour well.
As a whole Mindhorn is a fun little film, it has a good few laughs but it does fall flat on occasion. If you are a fan of 90's British comedy this will be perfect for you.
