Simply put, it’s a shameless one-sided political hit piece. The film makers even have a copout to it’s accuracy with an opening disclaimer that ends with “We tried our fucking best”. Still, as one-sided political hit pieces go, it’s a pretty good one. It’s biggest issue is overstaying its welcome.
Sam Rockwell, Steve Carell, and Amy Adams do a fine job made up as their respective characters, but you still recognize them as Sam Rockwell, Steve Carell, and Amy Adams. But Christian Bale? Holy crap.
