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. —IMDB

BURNT is mostly pretty bland except when Bradley Cooper is losing his temper. The scenes between him and Sienna Miller are the best in the movie. And I can only assume that the scenes in the kitchen are what really happens in top restaurant kitchens. But one can only sustain interest in images of good looking food for so long — stories about cooks and chefs need to have a lot more depth than this. BURNT has a reasonable message but the ending is predictable. It’s a lazy movie that is probably ok for a Sunday afternoon at home when it’s raining — and you have a nice place of food in front of you. Save this one for DVD.
