  • 2 stars "i didn't like it. great cast. it didn't interest me. i didn't pay to see it in a theatre, thank goodness. i would not recommend it. it's not even my skepticism for politics that influenced my decision."
  • 3 stars "if you enjoy political dramas, you'll enjoy this. suspense and intrigue make this entertaining but a sad reflection of politicians."
  • 5 stars "excellent"
