Not many thrillers impress me, but this one did and does. I like the way the story unfolds. I love the characters and particularly the interactions between them. It’s also visually stunning.
While I think it will date because it’s about newspaper journos and US national security at the end of “the noughties”, it’s well enough put together to not be too dented by that.
It also has an exceptional cast.
Loving this movie has put me in a bit of a bind though, because the original British mini-series was apparently even better. I don’t want to have my enjoyment of the movie undermind by that and yet I really want to watch the series – it too has a phenomal cast. Quandry!
