Movie Review: State of Play (2009)

Handsome, unflappable U.S. Congressman Stephen Collins is the future of his political party: an honorable appointee who serves as the chairman of a committee overseeing defense spending. All eyes are upon the rising star to be his party’s contender for the upcoming presidential race. Until his research assistant/mistress is brutally murdered and buried secrets come tumbling out.
Starring: Russell Crowe, Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Helen Mirren, Robin Wright Penn

 

My Review:

This movie had a good cast of actors and the movie had a good plot. This movie has a good combination of action and suspense and a lot drama in there too. It’s the typical Congressmen is cheating, she’s dead and they try to figure out what happened but there are a lot of twists and turns that keep you interested. Could the film have been better? Yes but it was a good movie to kill a couple hours on a friday night.

MY RATING: B-
