State of Play

A petty thief is gunned down in an alley and a Congressman's assistant falls in front of a subway - two seemingly unrelated deaths. But not to wisecracking, brash newspaper reporter Cal McAffrey who spies a conspiracy waiting to be uncovered. With a turbulent past connected to the Congressman and the aid of ambitious young rookie writer Della Frye, Cal begins uprooting clues that lead him to a corporate cover-up full of insiders, informants, and assassins. But as he draws closer to the truth, the relentless journalist must decide if it's worth risking his life and selling his soul to get the ultimate story. (Source: IMDB)

Megan's Movie Review:
This movie had some big actors in it and I personally thought it would've and could've been better. The mystery part of the story was really good, but there was something about it that I just didn't really think was great. It seemed sort of long and a little slow. The story was entertaining though. Also, Russell Crowe looked too fat. I don't know why it bothered me but he seemed almost like a different person. And the hair was awful. I love Rachel McAdams. I've said that before but I think she is a good actress. Another thing that I felt was kind of dumb was that these guys were just reporters and they were acting like they were the detectives. Like the police wouldn't get a hold of the information first! I know, it's just a movie, but still.. If they were trying to make it realistic, then make it seem realistic. There were a few good suspenseful parts in the movie. The bad guy scared me when he came after Russell Crowe in the parking lot. Overall, it was alright.
