Excellent movie. JDL is such a talented and versatile actor. The story of Edward Snowden and how his eyes were opened to the corrupt and terrifying underworld of the NSA and CIA. I'm personally thankful for his sacrifice of freedom to show the American people just how corrupt and dishonest the government can be. A democratic government is supposed to protect the values and privacy of its people, not abuse and infiltrate it through their own personal devices. The world needs more transparency and honesty. Thank you to Snowden for being brave enough to stand up for what is right. I guarantee you will cover your devices cameras after seeing his story. Call me paranoid but every single one of my devices has been and will always be covered since I discovered his story.
very good movie
Excellent! Only thing that bugged me was he unnecessary talked in a deep voice and wasn't consistent about it. Oh well. Good movie. Covered a lot that I didn't know.
Cyber security is a part of the future.
The detail is compelling and I might see it again in case I missed things. Appreciate the viewpoint offered on this vital event that turned the tide of American history and its connection up to the present -- a gov't that must keep him a criminal. His remarks about being at peace with himself -- we all strive for such peace. Snowden came into the world with the grit, resilence and depth of soul to see it through. May he have refuge when needed anywhere in the world. May he stay a free man.
This was a great movie. I was shocked that the US government allowed it to be shown. It was interested to see that the producers were not main stream Hollywood movie producers.
The actors in this movie did a great job sharing the fear of what the US government is doing to their own people. Keep making these kind of movies that bring enlightenment of our present situations.
I am a retired golden ager who knows little about computers yet I had no trouble following the technical explanations. The film is excellent, not only does the viewer clearly understand what motivated Snowdon and the personal sacrifices he has made but also appropriately reminds one to question government. Government's role is to create policy which serves the needs of its population, not spy on personal emails or follow private citizens' search engine requests.
This man is a genius he found out what everyone was thinking and he showed it to the world every secret agentcies dirty laundry
Great acting, great cinematography, great script, great set design, Snowden himself as a consultant, and a director that managed to make what could have been a movie that was too complex easy to understand.
To be honest, I didn't care for Stone's JFK. It just seemed all over the place and without focus. This was very focused. I knew I would be interested in the subject matter and would learn something, but I learned a lot more than I expected -- and am grateful for that.
I just saw it 2 days ago and I hope to see it again this week. (Note: I have never wanted to see the same movie twice in one week before in my life. Yes, it's that good.) Anyone who thinks Snowden was a traitor is not as educated on what this was all about as they should be. He did all of us a huge favor. Thank you, Mr. Snowden. You rock!!!
