“A Dark Truth Starring Forest Whitaker and Andy Garcia
Well, it’s also definitely true the movie thinks its being something more clever and important than it in fact truly is but as far as these movies go, this is not a bad attempt. Of course especially when considering this is not a big movie with a not so high budget or big studio behind it involved.
It’s the sort of political thriller, in which a man gets himself involved to bring down a big company. But don’t worry, that doesn’t mean this movie consists out of just talking and people sitting behind desks but it really in fact is an action loaded movie as well, which sort of goes at the expense of its credibility but it at the same time also helps to make this a more pleasant movie to watch.
The story itself didn’t seem solid enough anyway to carry this movie over. Like I said, it’s not as clever or heavy as it pretends to be and besides never gets all too involving to follow but at least it never gets poor or ridicules. Maybe it all would had been more interesting if the story in fact got based on a true story. That way it wouldn’t had only been more interesting but also would had a certain amount of gravity and importance to it, which is something this movie desperately was searching for throughout.
It also has a bit too many distractions in it as well. It features some formulaic movie stuff, all put in there to strengthen the movie its drama and gravity but it actually works against the movie, since it doesn’t feel very organic to its story.
You could say this movie is a bit of a weird blend between realistic and formulaic- and forced movie elements but it still for most part works out. Not that this movie shall win any big awards or is one that stays on your mind for long but it’s still a movie to have a decent 106 minutes with, when you have absolutely nothing better to do or watch.”
