You can't miss the All the President's Men vibe but this has its own personality and purpose.

Great performances lend a hand to an already tight script, which, save for one hiccup at the end, works quite well.

Never a dull moment corporate noir, as more Clark Kent than Superman Crowe releases his inner girlie man, and nicely sexes up that dull as doornails newsroom. Move over Watergate. These lurid machinations make those leaks seem like a mere pipe malfunction

A heck of a roller coaster ride, even if the rabbit-out-of-the-hat resolution is likely to leave you feeling a little bit cheated.
