~ Burke and Hare - A Review ~

Based on the true story about the famous murderers, 'Burke And Hare' follows the hapless exploits of these two men as they fall into the highly profitable business of providing cadavers for the medical fraternity in Nineteenth Century Edinburgh, then the centre of medical learning. The one thing they were short of was bodies.

I enjoyed this film however it wasn't as funny as I expected it to be. Simon Pegg plays a good character although the Irish and Scottish accents leave a litttle to be desired. The plot line is basic but manages to keep your attention throughout. I'm not sure this quite lives up to Pegg's other films but an enjoyable film all the same.

Happy Watching!
