Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The pacing is uneven, especially during the last act when Landesman abandons the slow, methodical approach of the first 80 minutes in favor of a lightning-fast recap of events in the administration's decaying twilight.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good In this version of the story, shot with old lenses for a vintage look and with a haunting, noir-ish score from Daniel Pemberton, Felt is literally a shadowy figure, most often in the dark.

NY Post Full Review
Below Average The new movie about Watergate is so boring that when whistleblower Mark Felt (Liam Neeson) finally meets up with Bob Woodward (Julian Morris) in a shadowy parking garage, you may find yourself wishing you could leave with the Washington Post reporter instead.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average ...well-intentioned yet safe, lifeless biopic that remains content to merely skim the surface of personal and political history as it charts little more than the obligatory greatest hits of the Watergate investigation and attempts to round out Felt's character with undercooked filler about his runaway daughter.

Note: The rating above is our interpretation of what the critic would give this movie based on their review. We are not affiliated with these critic's in any way.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The identity of the secret informant remained a source of intense public curiosity and speculation for over thirty years, until Felt revealed himself through an article in Vanity Fair in 2005.

While his name has been public for a decade, few know about the personal and professional life of the brilliant and uncompromising Felt, who risked and ultimately sacrificed everything, including his family, career, and ultimately his freedom, to bring what he knew to light.

MARK FELT shows us Watergate as we've never seen it before, flipping the perspective from All the President's Men's journalists-on-the-street to a view from the highest offices of power, an extraordinary window into a government in turmoil. The story of far-reaching White House corruption, of which the Watergate break-in was only a lone example.

As current events strike startling parallels to the political turmoil of the Watergate era- including power struggles between the executive branch and the FBI, evidence of election dirty tricks, and renewed White House challenges to the veracity of the media-Mark Felt's story could not be more timely.
