  • 4 stars I enjoyed this movie as it was well acted by the stars. This movie should make us all aware of the moral aspects of secrets.
  • 4 stars The Fifth Estate is an entertaining and informative movie. Much like The Social Network taught me a lot that I didn't know about the origins of Facebook, this film enlightened me on Julian Assange and the origins and workings of WikiLeaks; and did so in a most entertaining fashion. Benedict Cumberbatch shows why he is one of the most in-demand actors of his generation with his fine performance. Although the movie is slow in places, I enjoyed the journey.
  • 4 stars Overall a great movie, it was really interesting to see the whole story and how it played out!
  • 4 stars The movie was impressively showy with the banks of computers and displays of fast moving downloads - a tribute to the production team! The main actors - Benedict Cumberbatch and Daniel Bruhl - played well against each other, even as their feelings towards each other changed with time , and in turn, changed my opinion of Assange! I was pleased that whistleblowers were being helped with his group, only to discover he was the only one in the group, and used various noms-de-plume! His selfish aggrandizement through release on non-redacted files that could only increase casualties in a war, has left me with total disgust for Julian Assange, That a movie would change my opinion in a few
  • 4 stars Benedict Cumberbatch is an awesome actor! This movie was fast-paced and kept me interested and engaged the entire time. Really really good!
  • 2 stars I found it to be very informative concerning wikeleaks, but it was about as much fun as a PBS documentary.
  • 4 stars The Fifth Estate revealed the inner workings of the government and all of the secrets it entails. Based off of real life events, it portrayed how easily a whole new world can unravel with just a click of a button. It was intriguing and thoroughly entertaining led by great performances by the two main actors, Benedict Cumberbatch and Daniel Bruhl. One of Bill Condon's best.
  • 4 stars The Fifth Estate was very informative as to how the rich, big business and the government hide all kind of knowledge from the everyday person and to the extent they will go to keep it hidden. Very fast moving and interesting.
  • 4 stars I really enjoyed this movie, Benedict Cumberbatch does a superb job. The movie left my friend and I wanting to do our own research and inspired us to review our own moral/ethical views and opinons
  • 4 stars Whereas it is not quite up to the standards that ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN set in terms of movies about journalism, the performances by Benedict Cumberbatch and especially Daniel Bruhl propel this movie to great heights. I enjoyed it immensely
