About the Movie

Academy Award®-winner Russell Crowe leads an all-star cast, including Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams & Helen Mirren in the gripping thriller about deception, manipulation & corruption. When D.C. Reporter Cal McCaffrey (Crowe) is assigned to investigate the murder of an assistant to an up-and-coming politician (Affleck), he uncovers a conspiracy that threatens to bring down the nation's power structures. In a town of spin-doctors and wealthy power brokers, he will discover one truth: when fortunes are at stake, no one's integrity, love or life is safe. From director Kevin Macdonald of The Last King of Scotland, State of Play brings together strong performances, riveting suspense and is "sophisticated, intelligent and powerful" (Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV).

What a fantastic film, as always Russell Crowe does the profession of acting proud with another wonderful performance , the story twist and turns and ends up quite unexpectedly please watch this film you wont be disappointed if you are into great thrillers

His Best in Ages

Russell Crowe's best role in years, gripping and involving. Ben Affleck was excellent also and the whole cast did their jobs well. Helen Mirren was great in her role as a newspaper editor. A tight thriller with a great ending.

A Very Solid Political Thriller

It's better than you expect, and it shapes up to be a top-notch political thriller.
Having trouble with casting, the two who stepped up (Crowe and Affleck) are perfect, and give magnificent performances.
I highly suggest you watch this movie.
