Honey Ross (The Body Protest) and Becky Young (Anti Diet Riot Club) return to Flixwatcher to review Honey’s choice The Two Popes.

  The Two Popes is a 2019 biographical drama starring Anthony Hopkins as Pope Benedict XVI and Jonathan Pryce as Pope Francis. It follows the period after 2005 and the Vatican scandals - with Argentinean football. The Two Popes is the ultimate film for the pope fan but offers very much little else. Hopkins and Pryce do a good job with their impersonations and you can genuinely imagine them hanging out together. Where this semi-biographical and part fictionalisation meet is when the film fails to tackle the controversies and child abuse scandals that have plagued the news as you’d expect. Worse it ignores the issue rather than beginning to offer an apology. Scores

[supsystic-tables id=167] The Two Popes unsurprisingly scores quite low score apart from the small screen score - it feels quite TV like in its approach but lacks in a real story. The Two Popes scores overall 3.08 - bumped up by its high small screen score. What do you guys think? Have you seen The Two Popes? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
