Burnt stars Bradley Cooper as Adam Jones, a two-star Michelin Chef who destroyed his career with drugs and diva behaviour. He cleans up and returns to London, determined to redeem himself by spearheading a top restaurant that can gain three Michelin stars.
Who does he think he is – Gordon effing Ramsay??
Also starring Ex Machina‘s Alicia Vikander, Rush‘s Daniel Brühl, plus Sienna Miller as girlfriend Helen, Lily James, Uma Thurman, Emma Thompson, Matthew Rhys, Omar Sy and Sarah Greene (no, not the hottie who used to co-present Going Live in the ’80s), despite the mostly great cast, the film looks very pedestrian indeed: Chef wants to achieve perfection, but things don’t go his way and, as they’d say in Australia, he chucks a mental.
If you care, then Burnt is out in UK cinemas on October 16th. To me, it looks half-baked (oh, ho ho ho….)
