This dramatization of the events we know as the Beltway Sniper attacks completely misses the point of that crime spree and wastes a very good performance from Isaiah Washington. Co-writer/director Alexandre Moors has the absolute wrong focus here, choosing to make a statement about violence in […]

The film stars George Clooney, is directed by Brad Bird (The Iron Giant, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), and is written by Damon Lindelof (LOST) and Jeff Jensen (Velocity).
