Tube Tales is a British film compiled of 9 different short stories of people’s journeys on the London Underground.
Watching films with numerous unconnected story lines is a bit weird to me, and this was even weirder. Having travelled on the Tube countless times myself, I understand many of the in-jokes and stories in this film, however it all seemed a bit boring to me.
Throughout the film, I did not manage to enjoy every story, especially the stories: “Bone” and “A Bird In The Hand”, which had no dialogue, so were especially boring.
However, I did enjoy 3 of the stories: “Mr.Cool”, “Horny” and “My Father The Liar”, which were very funny, and quite interesting stories, and I enjoyed Ray Winstone’s performance in “My Father The Liar” too.
Overall, this gets 5.6 because it was a bit too boring for me because of the unconnected story lines as well as the occasional tale without any dialogue, however there were good points throughout.
