  1. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film State of Play

    Old school journalist meets new school political blogger in an old-fashioned conspiracy thriller in which both sort things out. A very entertaining movie, although the issues are not new (corruption, greed, betrayel, power play), but still interesting to see. However, in terms of conspiracy "All The President's Men" is the ultimate benchmark. In comparison to that it falls off. 3,5 stars.

  3. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film State of Play

    One star for a story seen a hundred times before + one star for Helen MIRREN <3

  4. Àlex Frias Haro's rating of the film State of Play

    Con un atractivo reparto, una historia con potencial, buenas actuaciones, aunque una historia que ya hemos visto antes y sin el suficiente suspenso para que se quede clavada en nuestra memoria.

    Rachel McAdams was hot as fuck in this

  7. Jerome Magajes's rating of the film State of Play

  8. Conor's rating of the film State of Play

    Pretty good thriller - I'd give it a 3.5/5. Add to that pretty good adaptation. Great concept, cool twists, awesome score, some brilliant supporting roles. The thing is, I have just watched the British miniseries and I have to say that it is one of the greatest things I have ever seen on TV. Go out and watch it if you can - it is sublime.

  9. NICOLE86's rating of the film State of Play

    Go and watch the original BBC miniseries.

  10. MikeEverleth's rating of the film State of Play

    Redeemed by the second half as the set-up is pretty all over the place. Actually, maybe the whole thing is, but at least the tension ramped up after awhile.

  12. Nutter Jr's rating of the film State of Play

    An engaging thriller with an interesting story lines with enough twists to keep the suspense on. A strong cast adds kudos to the film and a particularly powerful soundtrack that further enhanced to the tension build up. Only draw back is that the complex scenario needed to untangle too quickly near the end in order to keep the film within a viewable 2 hour duration timeframe.

  13. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film State of Play

    Solid political thriller from director Kevin Macdonald clearly emulates the conspiracy thrillers of the 1970s. Smart and well-crafted with strong performances from a stellar cast (though Ben Affleck is miscast, and doesn't quite reach the same level as the rest of the cast). Will it go down in the pantheon of great movie thrillers? No, but it is solid entertainment.

  14. Jazzaloha's rating of the film State of Play

    I disagree with Marcos. Do not see the film, but do see the BBC series--especially if you like Stone's *JFK*.
