Covering up news on the 1966 Vietnam war and the happened at that time between The New York Times and The Washington Post forms the base story of the film.
Content is extremely powerful and it has been adapted for a movie is just brilliant. Director Steven Spielberg has done a fantastic job and has given a watertight narration. Screenplay is gripping and grabs complete attention from viewers. Dialogues are so intense and very much to the point. Tom Hanks has given an extra-ordinary performance in an awesome role. But Meryl Streep sweeps the limelight by striking perfectly as powerful lady, her character is superb bold with self-confidence. Other supporting cast also has been finely shaped up. Writers have made sure to convey things in an impactful manner, and they’ve succeeded in it big time by providing high points at regular intervals, beauty is that nothing is really forced. Cinematography and editing team have to be lauded for their outstanding work. The plot is so different and the situations that line up are also quite unique, hence the flow is filled with surprises. There are plenty of moments which hit us hardly as the connect with the context builds inside in the progress. Film also ends with a bang.
Portions between Tom Hardy and his wife did not suit, also acted as small speed-breakers. John Williams’s background music fails to elevate the scenes as the pressure was missing which could’ve been changed only by his passionate work.
TO CONCLUDE – A stunning narrative by Steven Spielberg has made the output a great one to watch.
