Loz Loory's rating of the film Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House

The pace is slowwww. Neeson does a good job, though the dialogue contains plenty of clunkers and cliches. Apt parallel for our times with stress on independence of FBI despite Nixon's wishes. Seems like nothing compared with Trump's overreaches. The gloss over Felt's later conviction for overstep of authority with Weathermen surveillance might have made a good "gray area" story if fully explored. Dull role for Lane.
