5 out of 10 Very good political drama
John from Dublin, 04 Sep 2011
I didn't cop-on that this was based on true events until halfway through the movie. Very interesting movie with great performances from two always brillian leads. I was so drawn in to this that I watched this movie again the next day with the commentary (by Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson) turned on. I'm sure its a little bit one-sided and clearly some poetic license is taken on some of of the sentimental bits - but even if only 25% of this is accurate, it's a tale worth listening to.

1.5 out of 10 Emmm Boring??
Patricia from Kildare, 19 Oct 2011
Its a true story and a good one but not very well told in this movie. Infact it was very boring. I was very surprised because the two leads are amazing actors. I think this film was wasted on them. Id give it a miss.

3.5 out of 10 Engrossing Story
Lizelle from Galway, 23 Sep 2011
Good acting and engrossing story. Plenty of fast paced dialogue. Based on the book of the true story it maybe doesn't go deep enough into some aspects of the Governments reaction but a good over view.

4 out of 10 Very good
John from Dublin, 06 Nov 2011
Excellent political drama based on true story. Would make your blood boil when you see the machinations of Bush, Cheney, Libby et co. Sean Penn a bit OTT but doesn't spoil it.

4.5 out of 10 Top notch political drama
Claire from Dublin, 14 Oct 2011
Frightening that it's true events. West Wing paced so had to concentrate! Naomi Watts and Sean Penn give fantastic performances.
