Movie review score
2.5/5

What’s it about?
Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) is a Chef who destroyed his career with drugs and diva behavior. He cleans up and returns to London, determined to redeem himself by spearheading a top restaurant that can gain three Michelin stars.

What did we think?
Anthony Sherratt says: Imagine spending a fortune on the finest ingredients and bringing them together to create a meal that was “just nice”. Welcome to BURNT. Good quality acting, interesting characters, shell of a good story and yet they don’t quite manage to come together in a satisfying way. It’s not bad but you walk out of the restaurant cinema feeling it’s overrated for what you paid.  Some ok stuff for the foodies and Cooper fans but wait for the DVD.
