ReelViews for 'DRAMA/THRILLER' movies
Not the best of its kind but aims to say something rather than merely satisfy by copious bloodletting.
Although not the definitive Watergate movie, it illustrates an aspect that has not been given ample attention by filmmakers.
As a dramatic thriller, it does what it needs to do to keep the audience involved and interested.
The movie is unable to overcome a shaky narrative whose increasing preposterousness ensures it’s difficult to take seriously.
