    "I knew Elba was a good actor, but I didn't know he was this good. I wish more roles like this comes to this man! Raise the flag brother! We salute you! If you haven't watched it yet, I suggest you get Netflix and watch it now. "

    "WELP, I wished this wasn't one of the films here for my love MR IDRIS ELBA! I mean he was really good here, and played the character just about 100% perfectly but movie itself was kind of bland, espeically for a Stephen King book nerd like me! Can people just stop trying too hard in making their own twists to Kings' wonderful books? Elba was good through, along with Matthew"

    "I don't know if any actor can pull off what Idris did as Heimdall in all Thor films, especially in Ragnarok! Only he can do so much with such a limited role"

    "Nice to see this one included here. Really good film for a scifi alien and monster movie. A step ahead of most of its kind, this is the film where I thought Elba is fit to be the next icon similar to Morgan Freeman or Will Smith. "
