Synopsis


Fair Game
The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman teams with screenwriters Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth to streamline Joseph Wilson's and Valerie Plame's books detailing the explosive outing of undercover CIA agent Plame into a tense docudrama thriller starring Naomi Watts and Sean Penn. At the time her cover was blown by the George W. Bush administration, Plame (Watts) was combing Iraq for evidence of weapons of mass destruction as part of the CIA's Counter-Proliferation Division. Her husband, American diplomat Joe Wilson was attempting to verify a claim that the Iraqis had recently purchased enriched uranium from Niger when the White House began beating the war drums before any solid evidence had been gathered. When Joe penned an editorial in The New York Times decrying the hasty call to war, a prolific Washington, D.C. journalist took the opportunity to reveal Plame's identity as a CIA operative, an act that not only put her career in jeopardy, but also left her various contacts overseas in a precarious position. Years later, a jobless and publicly disgraced Plame wages a vicious fight to clear her name, set the record straight, and keep her family from falling apart. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I just bought this movie today on Blu-Ray,picture quality is very clear and good,i bought this movie because it says that"From the director of Bourne Identity"but this movie is nowhere close to bourne identity,i was expecting more thrill and action than just a low budget movie,there's no action in this movie,honestly if you ask me for $25 this movie is not worth,it should'nt be no more than $ 10-15,it's ok to watch once,it does shows the fact as it's based on a true story,it also does not have extras,it's more like a drama movie than action,i would say "SALT" was definitely better movie than this one,hope my review helps you before you buy it,thanks folks.

    The movie was slightly predictable and not quite as exciting as I thought it would be. I suppose that can be attributed to the story being told just as it might've happened? No exaggeration, etc. However, I did like the ending portion where the actual woman began to finally tell her story. It was mildly entertaining for me, not something I would watch over and over within a short span of time. But a decent story.
