Snowden doesn’t look bad – but you get the feeling it’s Oliver Stone on autopilot.
Joseph Gordon Levitt plays the lead and he’s supported by Nicolas Cage and Shailene Woodley. This true story is well known in the press and they seem to have beefed-up the thriller aspects, but it seems to lack Stone’s usual panache. Snowden looks solid, if unspectacular – I need to be impressed with this. Impress me!
Snowden opens in September.
