It's absolutely flawed and misses out on its full potential, but functions thanks to at least finding focus when doling out the facts and showing what went on throughout the investigation

... Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House resonates today.
October 20, 2017
"Mark Felt" is, by necessity, a cooler and quieter film than Neeson's recent run of action movies. But it has a nervous tension all its own, centered on Neeson's strong performance.

October 20, 2017
Are there any Mark Felts left, and when will they stand up? "Mark Felt" is asking that question just as much as it's honoring its subject, but it's not telling anyone to hold their breath.

The cast is first-rate, notably Neeson in the title role. "Mark Felt" benefits mightily from his very particular set of acting skills.

October 18, 2017
Neeson's contained, steely performance lifts this truncated tale of Watergate.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
October 16, 2017
Filmed in bleak green-gray hues, writer-director Peter Landesman's movie depicts D.C. as a nest of vipers, of conspiracies within conspiracies, of paranoia begetting paranoia.

Liam Neeson should be Oscar contender for this. Film could not be more relevant.
Full Review | Original Score: A minus
October 12, 2017
Though parts of the film drag, Neeson is terrific as Felt. That's saying something considering the character is as dispassionate and inscrutable as it's possible to be. But Neeson believably unpacks Felt's dignity and frustration.

With the latest threat of political scandal in the US comes the constant comparison, in the news media, with the Watergate scandal, making "Mark Felt" timely in an odd way.

...absorbing, and at least for now the definitive take on Deep Throat.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 4, 2017
With "All the President's Men" forever emblazoned in our collective consciousness, it's fun, or at least illuminating, to see some of these same scenes from Deep Throat's point of view.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Shot with an annoying lack of color, this is a less than compelling, but still moderately interesting, look at FBI agent Mark Felt aka DeepThroat, telling a Watergate story with no Bernstein and little Woodward.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
September 29, 2017
Liam Neeson is quietly devastating in a sluggish biopic of Watergate's Deep Throat that is eerily relevant if you wonder if they'll be a modern-day Felt to bring down the White House.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
September 29, 2017
The film's attempts to flesh out Felt's personal life fall flat and the story has a bit of trouble sticking the landing. Regardless, it's a fascinating story with a surprisingly strong tie to what's currently happening in the U.S. government.
