Liam Neeson is fine in the role of Mark Felt, and the subject matter itself is deeply intriguing, but is dealt with in such an odd way. Bad odd. It is essentially a sequence of disparate scenes with no connective tissue other than that they are about the same conspiracy, which unfolds very quickly in a straight line with no consequences felt... Felt... Ohhh. I see what I did there.
Maybe for a diehard political biopic fan this could be the way to go, or someone who wasn’t aware Watergate ever happened and wanted some hard and fast facts, but for me, it was only okay.
_Final rating:★★½ - Not quite for me, but I definitely get the appeal._
