Miss Sloane Reviews

  • Aug 02, 2019

    Miss Sloane is about a successful political lobbyist who is always a couple of steps ahead of her opposition and will do whatever it takes to win no matter who gets in her way. She is approached by a gun manufacturing rep to come up with a campaign to win over female voters in regards to opposing a proposed bill that would expand background checks on gun purchases. However, those that hoped to hire her now find themselves in direct opposition to her as she does everything in her power to get the senators voting on the bill to side with her team. I quite enjoyed this, Jessica Chastain was very good as the ice cold Elizabeth Sloane, willing to sacrifice anything and anyone to win the fight of her career. The film is mostly based on a war or words but the script is well written so it keeps your interest despite the lack of action. The supporting cast are all good too but it's the lead actress that makes this film and holds it up as one to remember.

    A long film full of technical jargon and situations revolving around lobbying -- a subject that isn't particularly interesting, as much as they did their best to make it so – ‘Miss Sloane' is only made watchable thanks to Jessica Chastain's fabulous central performance of a character that is just a bit too dislikeable and cold, no matter how smart she may be.

    The falsehoods rained down in torrents. A truly horrid gun control propaganda piece, well-acted but a pathetic attack on the 2nd Amendment. Wait let's see if it checks all the boxes? 1. Hero is a strong woman, minority, gay, trnasgender (insert victim class here) 2. Villains are white men. 3. Villains are middle age or older. 4. Victims are sad, minorities, to include children if possible. 5. Heroine is smarter, flawed and more committed to honorable cause. 6. Sensitive, heart wrench beefcake really understands heroine, like no other. An AR 15 isn't an assault rifle. It just looks ooh-so-scary to Hollywood leftist writers. This could have been a decent movie if Hollywood didn't have to preach and lecture us deplorables every day.

    Miss Sloane was a good movie- very stylish. The surprise ending wasn't really that much of a surprise, but it still worked ok. Miss Sloane reminded me of Micheal Clayton. Shark lobbyists and "bag-man" corporate lawyers made interesting. Both were fantasies, but still a lot of fun. The only drawback was the 2 hour run time. Yes, it did drag on at places in the film.

    Miss Sloane fights with all strategies--dirty or not dirty--to win for what she believes.

    Different, highly watchable and far more entertaining than I expected. Jessica Chastain plays her "larger than life" character with gusto and commitment and you cannot help rooting for her despite the moral indiscretions. Even though the plot is Marvel comic entertainment with the inevitable silliness of remote-controlled cockroaches, it kept me awake and engaged to the very end.

    Chastain so adeptly embodies witty, driven, ruthless womenï¿ 1/2"the same sort of character she plays so well in the better MOLLY'S GAME and the worse JURASSIC WORLDï¿ 1/2"that despite the life she brings to the role, the affair still feels utterly rote. Yet the movie's biggest failing, besides from being overly long and too formulaic, is the fantasy of it: The filmmakers hardly needed to dream up such a twisted tale to represent the sordidness of lobbying in DC, other than to give this tangle a happy endingï¿ 1/2"a lie even greater than those politicians tell.
