Three brilliant visionaries set off in a charged battle for the future in The Current War, the epic story of the cutthroat competition that literally lit up the modern world. Benedict Cumberbatch is Thomas Edison, the celebrity inventor on the verge of bringing electricity to Manhattan with his radical new DC technology. On the eve of triumph, his plans are upended by charismatic businessman George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), who believes he and his partner, the upstart genius Nikola Tesla (Nicholas Hoult), have a superior idea for how to rapidly electrify America: with AC current.

Stupid writers don't know historyReviewed byabdallahalsaeedVote: 1/10
How such a fascinating subject could have been turned into such a boring film heaven only knows. Indeed, if you did not have some basic knowledge of the background to the story it is doubtful you would have a clue what was going on! Leaden script, 2 dimensional performances from the cast and some really confusing, unnecessary and bizarre flashbacks make this a turkey that came early for Christmas! If you still feel obliged to see it then I recommend you take a pillow and a blanket.
I read some of the previous reviews and wondered how they seemed so far off from what I watched, then a story on NPR filled in the gaps. It appears that When the rights to the movie were still controlled by Weinstein, he rushed the production to get it into the Toronto Film Festival. The Director's Cut version currently in theaters includes more content than the original release, which likely enhanced the story and historical accuracy. It did not paint Edison in a glowing light as previously indicated, and although it did not focus on Tesla as a primary character, it did give him his due. I found the movie so intriguing that I want to read more about this part of history.
