Christ potatoes, I love a good political thriller. In some aspects I felt this was a better film than The Ides of March, which was one of my favorites of 2011. 7 years 7 months ago
Superb film from beginning to end. Well done Polanski, I didn't see this one coming. 9 years 1 month ago
I read lots of comments about this one - and I don't agree with most of them.
Lots of people seem to dislike this film because it's either boring or predictable - I don't agree with any of this; but neither do I agree with other comments praising the movie too much. I think it's rather average; not bad at all, entertaining, with a certain dark atmosphere, a great Ewan McGregor and a nice turn at the end. It did not blow me away and I don't think I'll watch it a second time, either... but I was well entertained the first time. 6 years ago
