House of Cards
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 04/09/2014 11:40:44
While some of the execution is a little on the basic side and some of the performances unnecessarily overwrought, this political mini-series is worth catching solely for the deliciously unctuous portrayal of master tactician, Francis Urquhart, from Ian Richardson. With his icily polite demeanour, not many figure out that underneath it all rages an all-consuming desire to get to the top and that he will do anything to achieve that ambition. Such is the force of his fourth-wall breaking characterisation that not else about this relatively lacklustre production much registers.
