Cumberbatch is superb in this riveting story. taut storyline and great acting

Its been a while since i found a thriller that i enjoyed. was made all the more interesting by the fact that this was around real events. the leaking of truth that so called western democracies would rather have buried, such as the US helicopter killings of 2 reuters journalists and dozens of civilians is just one of the groundbreaking stories that has been broken to the public by the whistleblowers. its also an insight into the relationships and tension between the various founders behind this global organisation.

Benedict Cumberbatch great actor but the movie is propanganda attack on Wikileaks

WOW! Berg guy is totally self righteous a hole. You don't even have to know anything about the subject matter and you know this movie is totally BOGUS! A complete smear campaign on the founder of Wikileaks. "People love the true WikiLeaks story: a small group of dedicated journalists and tech activists who take on corruption and state criminality against the odds," Assange writes in his statement. "But this film isn't about that. ... Instead of the exciting true story, we get a film about a bland German IT worker who wasn't even there and a fabricated fight over redactions with the old newspapers and the State Department saving the day. The result is a geriatric snoozefest that only the US government could love." "As justification it will claim to be fiction, but it is not fiction. It is distorted truth about living people doing battle with titanic opponents. It is a work of political opportunism, influence, revenge and, above all, cowardice."

It had the potential.

I began this movie, with high expectations, expecting a thought provoking drama with good acting and dialogue. I find the story for the WikiLeaks owners life to be quite interesting, and when I found out there was a movie about that, I grinned in excitement. The owner for WikiLeaks had an interesting life, and could actually be made into a masterpiece of a movie, if the director does not mess up. I was hoping the director for this movie would not mess up. I was telling myself, "Come on, it is a movie about WikiLeaks! It'll be great!"

I was gravely wrong.

One of the things I hate in some movies is the infamous shaky camera and quick cut clichè. It drives me nuts, because I am not able to focus on what is going on in the scene. But sometimes, the shaky camera and quick cuts, if not used excessively, can be used quite well.

Almost every shot in the first half of this movie used quick cuts and shaky camera poorly.

I told myself, "Come on, keep watching the movie. It will get better!"

It did, sure. But that isn't saying much.

Also, there was a try-hard "emotional" scene near the start of the movie, where we get a brief glimpse into the owner of WikiLeaks's childhood. The scene felt very forced, and soon enough I think the wall was bashing his head on mine because of how painfully awfully forced that scene was. That scene could of been sad, if there was a build up to it, instead of some shaky quick cut shots of technology.

This also tried to act stylized. You know, like how Wes Anderson and Stanley Kubrick have their style. But, the thing with their styles, is that they are not forced. The style in this movie was forced. Forced with a capital F.

"Your cows seem a little depressed."

Thats a line from this movie. There is more intelligent dialogue like that in the movie, don't worry.

I don't know. Maybe if you are a huge fan of Benedict Cumberbatch speaking in a Australian accent, you'll enjoy this. If you are not, I suggest you don't watch it.

If you have an IQ of nine, you may say "Shut up! I will decide if I like this movie myself!"

Okay, decide if you want. But I am warning you.
