For a while now, I have been calling for Dev Patel to become the newest big action star at the movies. Why not make him the next James Bond? Or at least give him a vehicle to have his own Jason Bourne-style super spy? The Slumdog Millionaire star has the looks, the charisma, acting skills, and the charm to be that guy, but unfortunately The Wedding Guest only gives us a taste of those abilities. Following the success in his Oscar-nominated role for Lion, Patel musters up enough and delivers more of the same, in Michael Winterbottom’s lovers on the run thriller, which also features Patel walking around India, looking for stuff and not finding much. The Wedding Guest shows up for the party and forgets to bring a present.
