There's nothing particularly revolutionary about writer-director Robert Edwards' grimly satiric political fable.

About as subtle as its all too obvious title would suggest.

The dialogue creaks, all the more so since we know better than it does what it is going to say.

By Michael Atkinson
It's an easy movie to loathe, but it's designed imaginatively and enjoys the committed attention of its cast.

By Peter Travers
Political satire is so rare that it's a shame to watch the reliable Ralph Fiennes and Donald Sutherland lend their talents to one that is blind to its own incompetence.
