All you really need to know about this movie is that it is intense. Before watching this movie I knew the rough outline of what happened but I didn’t really know any details. And boy was I floored by the details. This movie did a great job of telling this story, the actresses and actors were amazing. But what made this movie such a good true story movie was that even though I knew the outcome I was worried, stressed, and even a little bit afraid that the story was going to fail. I had to keep saying to myself “don’t worry they succeed and he gets taken down”. This is a good mark of a successful true story movie if it can take you out of reality enough that it’s almost like you’re reliving events for the first time even though you know the outcome.
The most powerful choice this movie made was the use of hotel hallways. The fact that they could make scenes with nothing but an empty hallway exude such a strong feeling of overwhelming pressure and helplessness was impressive. This movie is a prime example of how to make a “based on a true story” movie and it full deserves a 10 out of 10.
