From the producers of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy comes a riveting and suspenseful mystery starring Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall. A high-profile terrorism case unexpectedly brings two exceptional lawyers (Bana and Hall) with a romantic past together on the defense team. They soon realize they’ve stepped into a dangerous web of cover-ups and lies, and their knowledge of the government’s top-secret classified evidence has put their reputations and lives at stake. Co-starring Ciarán Hinds, Julia Stiles and Jim Broadbent, it’s a non-stop, heart-racing guessing game that critics call “an entertaining conspiracy thriller.” (Jocelyn Noveck, Associated Press)

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's storytelling informed by sloppy, absolutist thinking, and it lends one more uncritical voice to the many who seem unable to distinguish between kinds and degrees of evil ...
Rotten: This officious, aggravatingly overexplained drama gets more washed out and dull as it goes along.
Fresh: The movie is low-key but each scene is packed with information. Full understanding demands full attention.
Fresh: Sharp ensemble work ups this thriller's intelligence quotient.
Outstanding cerebral story
Eric bana is outstanding as always and severely underrated. He was amazing in Munich, and is solid here. Acting is all around stellar in this London thriller. No car chases etc..thankfully! Do not miss this one. All the negative reviews are for the viewers looking for action I suppose. This is a thinking person's movie.
It was so, so
Started out slow, briefly got better as the “conspiracy” angle ramped up, but then it coasted through the rest of the film (an hour or so) until it just ended. All in all, I’d say that the “subplot” of the affair between the two protagonists is arguably the main plot — because that’s where all the actual acting took place.
In my opinion, steer clear unless you’re getting a great deal on it.
