A thriller that pulls you in and doesn’t let go.
It’s often said that suspension of disbelief is not a bad thing when you read or watch fiction, but in the case of “The Independent”, you need no such thing. Sure it’s fiction, but it hits so close to home you can’t help but think ‘this could so easily happen, right now’.
I think it was a pretty good script to begin with, then you have a big name, Brian Cox, to add to the work and other actors who do not fail to deliver very credible performances, and what you get is a movie which will make you think of “All the President’s Men”, which of course was not entirely fiction, just dramatically boosted. I may have elected (pun intended) to watch the movie because it featured Brian Cox, but Jodie Turner-Smith, a compatriot (another intended pun) of Brian Cox, is the main actor and she delivers like the pro she is. John Cena was, in my humble opinion, the required American actor which the story called for; he may be better known for other than plain thriller movies, but, admittedly, he provided what was needed, and may well add fans to his list as more people watch the film.
IMDb’s storyline/synopsis is what I refer you to as I would not wish to spoil the movie going/watching experience for you. If that storyline turns you off because it sounds too far fetched or perhaps boring, I promise you it is neither, and it’s why I hesitate not in recommending it.
Better than the 5.4 IMDB rating by far
I was struck with how well this movie opened with a great writing sequence. I guess I related to a marginalised character both for being a woman and black stood who up for herself very professionally against a clearly biased boss.
I loved how this was written and how Brian Cox came in and added some credibility with his always awesome acting.
The story was current and relevant and not at all predictable which really is quite hard to do these days.
I like these kind of movies though and I think if you like political dramas and thrillers this will just appeal.
So much makes sense here and it’s believable that this amount of corruption leads to real presidents being elected.
Great casting all round. The likes the way this movie just grabbed my attention, for every minute. Very engaging.
