There’s not a single action sequence yet I feel like this is the most action movie I’ve seen in awhile. The edge of your seat kind of stuff. Totally loved and enjoyed it. And Keira was amazing. One of her top performance, if I dare say.

I can't help but wonder how many events like this one, or to a similar end, have happened without the public ever knowing about them. Honestly, the world could do with a few more selfless people who decide to turn into whistleblowers for the greater good of humanity. Katharine should be applauded. Shame on anyone who promotes unnecessary war, unlawful invasion and the murdering of hundreds of thousands of innocent people. Greedy killers hiding beneath their "defenders of freedom" cloak. Shame on them.

Great movie. Very well produced and played. This is a very important topic. There is so much BS going on past, prestent and, most likely, future. And people need to be reminded. Even if it falls on deaf ears with the majority.

**I'm a fan if you can keep me as engaged as any of the Fury Road action sequences.** Official secrets comes under the 'whistleblowing' genre whose stalwarts include movies like All the president's men and Network. There have also been a few in recent times like The Post and Spotlight. But what makes this stand out is the amount of time we spend on the protagonist's personal life. Not to take away anything from these movies, (they might even lessen if they try something like this) but it was important here that we devoted our focus into the character's personal struggles because only then would we know how hard the decisions that she made were and the things that were at stake for her when she chose this for herself. That for me elevated the movie to a whole new level.

This movie is for people like Jameela Jamil who said she was too busy learning about social justice to pay attention to ‘history’ like the Iraq war. Also, it’s for people who don’t know USA and UK are fat, ugly, arrogant, narcissistic warmongers. _“We have a right to intervene in the Balka More

‘Official Secrets’ is an odd duck of a film. As much as it never quite finds its groove, it’s still an often thrilling and genuinely entertaining film, profiling an important figure in the movement against the Iraq War. Even after all this time, it’s still a shock to realise how thoroughly w More
