FAIR GAME [2010] movie review

December 31, 2011 · Print This Article

What I learned by watching FAIR GAME is that when a president wants something, no matter what it is, it gets done.  If you were angry about what happened back in 2003 and the Bush administration’s decision to go to war with Iraq, then you might want to save yourself some stress and not watch FAIR GAME.  However, if you really want to feel angry all over again, then the movie is very effective at specifically showing why and how massive anger is justified.

Movies do an outstanding job at making the profession of CIA agent seem like the coolest job in the world. It cannot possibly be even 1/8th as cool though. You never seen the mountains of paper work or hours of tedious research. Stressful situations on screen take just a few minutes, with the hard parts conveniently edited out. Still, it makes for entertaining cinema.
