Movie Review by Movie Addict
September 14th, 2008

Evil will triumph until one good man steps up.

It is impossible to comment on this movie without being political. It is a political movie and the fact that you like it or do not like it is an indication of your stance.

It is a movie. Do not forget that. However, it is certain that the characters in this movie have real counterparts in Washington today. There are those who would not be seen as soft on terror, and would never make a decision that would make someone think they were. It is the usual position of government bureaucrats taken to the nth power. To make a decision opens you up to criticism and possible firing. So let someone be tortured and die possible just so you won't be proved wrong.

Deny. Deny. Deny. If you keep denying, you can't be criticized. Make sure your bill is passed and don't let the life of one man stop it. If you personally suffered because of your actions, make sure you take it out on others.

There is so much in this film that it almost overshadows the great performances of Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal. Meryl Streep is the ultimate evil - next to her boss, of course.
