Idris Elba does his best in this below-par paranoid drama

Legacy: Black Ops review

Idris Elba has “The devil in his eyes” in this paranoid thriller about a traumatised special Forces operative planning to pull a Wikileaks.

The former Wire star takes a break from his upcoming superhero blockbusters (Thor, Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance) to produce what he probably thought was an acting showcase.

Confined to a doss-house bedsit for 90 minutes, Elba’s sweaty veteran valiantly battles flashbacks and hallucinations straight out of Polanski’s Repulsion.

Pity the under-par screenplay rarely raises the stakes high enough to convince.
