Snowden Movie Review By Ryan Balkwill

Academy Award (R)-winning director Oliver Stone, who brought Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, Wall Street and JFK to the big screen, tackles the most important and fascinating true story of the 21st century. Snowden, the politically-charged, pulse-pounding thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley, reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the polarizing figure who exposed shocking illegal surveillance activities by the NSA and became one of the most wanted men in the world. He is considered a hero by some, and a traitor by others. – Flixster/Rotten Tomatoes.

Yes I though the plot was interesting.

I like the movie because it’s about Edward Snowden.

I like the bit where Snowden entered the pentagon to steal top-secret documents with no one seeing it happening and a cameo by the man himself.       

  • Edward Snowden also briefly portrays himself in a cameo

I will recommend this film to everyone.

Rating:  4 out of 5 stars – Flixster/Rotten Tomatoes.
