Snowden, the politically-charged thriller reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the controversial figure who exposed shocking illegal surveillance activities by the National Security Agency and became one of the most wanted men in the world. A hero to some and a traitor to others, the provocative story of what led him to that fateful decision makes for one of the most compelling stories in recent history.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: As Snowden, Gordon-Levitt is so muted, so cloistered, that it can be easy to miss that it's a very good performance.
Rotten: Stone's flashy filmmaking, including grand set pieces in enormous secret facilities, can't conceal his flat, thin, psychology-free depiction of a modest and self-sacrificing hero who single-handedly changed the politics of our time.
Fresh: It's a forthright attempt to engage with this fascinating, opaque figure and show what it cost him personally.
Fresh: Partiality is the heel in this Achilles film; though to this Achilles film's credit, it also outruns, as storytelling, the tortoise forebodings we might have had about a true-life plot so cerebral and cyber-centric.
I watched the documentary 'Citizen 4'; and this is a very good movie to fill in some of the gaps (although dramatic and...). Whatever your stance on the subject of metadata and its method of acquiring it; this is one of Oliver Stones (best, recent movies) and JGL is expanding his tremendous ability as an actor as he captures the documentary Snowden persona extremely well. A good watch for understanding this controversial topic and whistle blower who inspired the movie.
I loved it!
The main actor was fantastic! This is one of the best movies I've seen all year.
Hilarious, delusional version of what happened
Pure fiction. Dying of laughter. Anyone with any knowledge of contractor jobs would know how much bs this is. 😂😂😂😂
