A SLOW-BURN THRILLER - VERY SLOW, THAT'S THE ISSUE
Ok, with all the story / reliability content, this good drama or a political thriller (if you can call it like that) is indeed very slow. The actual movie starts & ends in the last 20-25 minutes or so. Initally, too much of dragging. Problem als there with the star cast. Apart from Jamie Lee Cutis, not many known faces.
The lead, Tika Sumpter (Libby) is wholly wooden in her expressions. But for her well-chiseled physique, she fails to emote. Story is very topical and of course, the twist in the tail is worth-watching, if you have patience to sit thru' the boring 2/3rd of the movie.
