About the Film
Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks share the screen for the first time in Steven Spielberg's THE POST, a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post's Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race against time to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers - and their very freedom - to help bring long-buried truths to light.
Nothing Spielberg directs should be your average bore, and somehow with a sensational cast, and quite the sensational plot, The Post is a dull venture and nothing more, nothing less. For a film that tackles with such huge issues as Free Press, it has so little atmosphere or intensity, It just plods onwards to an inevitable Spielberg esque finale. The biggest redeeming factor is of-course the performances, seeing both Streep and Hanks together in front of Spielberg’s lense for the first time was fantastic, but the film felt more Bob Odenkirk’s than anyone else.
Worth a watch
Found it a bit dull & fairly boring in places but the outstanding performances from Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks save the film and keep it from being a flop. Definitely worth a watch, however it could have been so much better.
If I could rate it out of 10 it would be a 7.
Not bad - but not brilliant either.
The post, see the trailer that’s as exciting as it gets.
Oh dear, had potential but was never realised despite a great cast. The trailer gives the impression that the film will be gripping but unfortunately that is not the case, it is as a lot of reviewers have stated a quite dull film, anti-climactic a disappointment.
