Movie Reviews

Movie Review from EmpireOnline.com

Though Paul Greengrass took over for the sequels, Doug Liman directed The Bourne Identity, and is thus responsible for the current state of the espionage thriller. This is a companion-piece to Greengrass' Green Zone, applying the style of Robert Ludlum conspiracy nonsense to the all-too-true hash of the Iraq War where, in these films at least, the reasoned, pragmatic, surprisingly sensible advice of the CIA was junked by rabid administration hawks in a scramble to find an excuse to blast Saddam Hussein.

Movie Review from TotalFilm.com

In the age of WikiLeaks, the Valerie Plame affair – in which the undercover CIA operative was publicly exposed after her ex-diplomat husband Joseph Wilson ticked off the Bush White house by accusing them of lying about WMDs in Iraq – can almost sound quaint in hindsight. Of course, it was anything but; Doug Liman's skilful, well-constructed drama proves a timely reminder not just of one woman's ruined career, but how a petulant administration abused its elected power with sinister intent.

Movie Review from Guardian.co.uk

As well as being a fantastically boring film, with Team-America-style performances from Sean Penn and Naomi Watts, Fair Game is a deafening aria of self-pity and self-importance from the liberal overclass in Washington and Hollywood. It is a movie with right on its side, and never was that right proclaimed more shrilly or more smugly, or with a more obtuse insistence on privileging soft-focus personal drama over political relevance. It is complacent and fatuous in a way that only a preeningly well-intentioned Hollywood drama can be.

Movie Review from TimeOut.com

In an attempt to ensure some Hollywood glitter at last year's Cannes, Doug Liman's star-driven, serious-minded if hardly mould-breaking Iraq War drama was awarded a slot in competition. Was allowing some of the world's fiercest critics to sink their teeth into it really the best marketing move, not to mention having it compete against films which contained, say, catfish-based cunnilingus? A year on, and looking at it with none of the festival hurly burly, the film emerges as an absorbing, unhysterical thriller that largely rejects the clichés of the genre.

Movie Review from Movies.com

If you watched the news while all this was going down, you don't really need to see this movie, but it's good that it exists. It's not just that it's a well-made adult drama about real events that, sadly, seem both unbelievable and too horrifyingly real, it's the kind of movie that will anger audiences whose memories extend past the last two years. They used to make these kinds of films a lot in the '70s and early '80s, stuff like All The President's Men, political dramas about corruption at the highest levels of power.

Movie Review from Telegraph.co.uk

What Julie Taymor's going for in The Tempest is perfectly laudable on paper. In practice, it makes you shudder and want to hide. Helen Mirren is Prospera – a female Prospero – whose costumes would lead you to believe she's spent most of her time in island banishment slaughtering birds of prey. Sandy Powell got a freak Oscar nomination for these, and for covering everyone else in zips. Taymor made a compelling case for Titus Andronicus in her 1999 Titus, indulgences notwithstanding.
