A for cinemascore, 75% from RT's audience score with 3.8/5 average rating and 7.1/10 f IMDb. Yet another case of difference in consensus of audience and critics so far this year.£

With currently 60% on RT the gap isn't that huge though.

This movie is not a mess; in fact, I reckon a few of you will enjoy it.

I actually enjoyed it, it's probably in my top 20 of the year, but I think it needed more of a resolution between Ed and his girlfriend. The film should end with her coming to Russia since it was as much the story of their relationship as it was about the leak.

Also the tension during the interview itself was missing. If you watch the famous documentary, it was way more tense than the fictionalized version.

These would be my two major gripes but other than that it's a pretty compatent film with a fascinating story that needed to be done on film.
