The heroes are lawyers who use, to vindicate the whistleblower, the same Fog of War legalese that got Britain into the war. Which is to say the broken system that allowed the illegal war isn't just upheld, it's reaffirmed. Also, it's just a BORING movie. Almost everything is uncinematic. Best stuff was early on: Keira watching TV, being disgusted by Tony Blair, the data theft, some of the journo stuff re: Koza, etc.
Surprisingly competent and compelling espionage thriller. Knightley, in particular, gives an understated performance that is mostly free of her normal acting tics. Great supporting cast of Smith, Goode, Ifans, and Fiennes. A cameo by Tamsin Greig is especially well done. Some excellent editing choices to speed along the repetitive parts of the trial.
