terrific thriller starring russell crowe, ben affleck, rachel mcadams and helen mirren. the political parts are great, the atmosphere moody and the second half, especially the ending, will keep you satisfied.

State of Play manages to generate some decent thrills with a few believable performances. Other than that, a pretty formulaic political thriller

Far from a classic edge of the seat thriller but watchable none the less.

Personally realized I love investigative journalism films and this was an excellent example. Spotlight, All the President's Men come to mind. The acting was stellar, the tension thick.

An edgy political thriller that offers a nostalgic eulogy to the good old days of print journalism (read All The President's Men), while anticipating its demise.

A genuinely gripping thriller with an engaging and intriguing story, and a cast who do a good job. The best Russell Crowe has been for a long time.

It's kind of hard to follow at points, and has some pacing issues, but overall 'State of Play' is an acceptable mystery thriller, which is helped by good performances from all the main cast.

Robust direction, clever script, well-aimed dialogues, humour, well-shot scenes, very good performances by all, action, and, generally, everything that comprises an excellent political thriller.

Great cast, but it runs out of steam very quickly

A boring political drama that is meant to be thrilling but isn't. I found it confusing and poorly made. (First and only viewing - January 2010)

I liked a lot the twist. Great dialogue and performances.

Its plot is bloated, but Kevin McDonald's "State Of Play" is a solid, well acted political thriller with fine writing and direction.
