Critic Reviews for The Report
The hackneyed script has the effect of lending an unmerited nobility to the politicians and bureaucrats on-screen.
Director Scott Z Burns captures the events in a cold, rigorously factual, and largely dispassionate manner. But that's the point.
The film, written and directed by Scott Z. Burns, takes its cue from the stern dedication of its hero; the result feels pressurized, disheartening, and fraught.
A film as thought-provoking as this should pack more thrills; the majority of the suspense is generated from Driver's countenance, not Burns' ability to captivate an audience.
This velocity, along with the performances, helps turn a movie that's essentially about a 6,700-page report (eventually boiled down to 525) into riveting storytelling.
