    Snowden is a great movie that makes you think about how much spying the U.S. is doing on it's people. To be honest I thought Edward Snowden was a traitor before seeing this movie. I didn't know all the information about what he did before seeing this movie. Even though this movie doesn't tell you everything it does a great job telling the major parts of his story. The actors did a great job and the pacing is good. I like that this movie started when Snowden was in the military and you got to see what happened to him through his career and eventually him living in Russia. I still think he should pay for telling the public information he swore to keep secret I understand more why he did tell. You will enjoy this movie even if your not into technology or understand all the tech lingo spoken. Overall this is a Sunday afternoon rainy day movie to enjoy with someone.

    I behooves all thinking and intelligent persons to know what Edward Snowden risked his life and career to reveal, and this movie gives the story with compelling accuracy. Some consider him a hero, others consider him a candidate for treason, yet if the facts on the ground are known and understood, he has to stand out as one of the most important figures of modern times. The movie in some places is astounding and eye-opening so far as how far, and to what degree, the NSA and CIA probes into the private lives of every American, everywhere on planet earth. The acting is good, and there are some sexy parts too if you're into that, but I would like to have seen the story and the details of it developed to a greater degree. Nevertheless, this portrayal provides an education and left me thinking for days after seeing it the first time.

    'Snowden' is one of the greatest films from Oliver Stone in years. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, on the other hand, gives a masterful performance as NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. The film itself goes into great detail as it chronicles the backstory of Snowden's life and how he managed to pull off one of the greatest political exposures in U.S. history. As an added bonus, this DVD / Blu-Ray pack also features an exclusive interview with Edward Snowden himself while the end credits feature a montage of clips...including archived material from the now infamous 2016 U.S. election as well. In summary, if you like a well crafted docu-drama, then 'Snowden' is for you!

    I saw SNOWDEN in the theater, and I couldn't wait for it to be released on DVD. I was fascinated with the Oscar-winning documentary, CITIZEN FOUR, and this film only served to reinforce the courageous nature of this brave individual. The film took a personal look at the man, so it brought him back to life in a way we can all better try to understand him as a human being. The performances were great, and the film was thought-provoking. Furthermore, the extras were fabulous. I am happy to have this DVD along side my DVD of CITIZEN FOUR.

    I had no idea this movie existed, but have heard the name "Snowden" thrown around so I gladly bought it. It was a great movie. And there was more truth in it than anticipated. It is truly an eye opener! It will cause you to do things differently! It was even mentioned in the movie that foreign scammers will win the "Malware" American war. Ironically and unfortunately, my son was the victim of a Chinese "Malware" scam and lost 10K just days prior to watching this movie! Like I said: more truth than anticipated!

    I truly admire and respect Edward Snowden for what he did. You can say he took one for the team and exposed the "man" and showed their true colors. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley had amazing chemistry and were great as Edward and Lindsay. The story is amazing as it shows you how he came to making the decision he did as well as everything he went through before that. The acting was great, directing, just everything. I recommend this if you wanna see a great biopic.

    As director Oliver Stone would have it, the story of Edward Snowden is the story of how official America can't tolerate whistle blowers, who reveal official governmental wrongdoings. Stone is probably right and Snowden is a good example of that shortcoming of our government. Don't miss the interview with the real Snowden and with Stone and the cast of the movie in the special features. The real Snowden shows himself to be a truly selfless patriot who's getting a raw deal.

    This is quite the movie! Not only does Oliver Stone render a thrilling story, Joseph Gordon-Levitt gives a captivating performance as the man himself. Seen by some as a hero, by others as a traitor to his country, this film entertains and enlightens with what leads to Snowden's decision to go public with what he found. Decide for your yourself and see this great film! And then watch the real Edward Joseph Snowden behind the scenes and in an interview...
