This is fast-moving with good dialog and acting until the last twenty minutes, which got too over-the-top Hollywood for me. Also, this is another one of those cop stories with dark photography that most people over twenty-five won't appreciate.
Josh Brolin is absolutely terrific—he manages not only to look like President Bush but to act and talk like him. The portrait of Bush is more balanced than I would have expected. The problem with the movie is we know where it's going and pretty much how it gets there.
