But not to wisecracking, brash newspaper reporter Cal McAffrey (Russell Crowe), who spies a conspiracy waiting to be uncovered. With a turbulent past connected to the Representative and the aid of ambitious young rookie writer Della Frye (Rachel McAdams), Cal begins uprooting clues that lead him to a corporate cover-up full of insiders, informants, and assassins.

Reviews:

This movie follows a familiar subset of the thriller genre, that of the journalist investigating a story and discovering there is more involved than what meets the eye, and before he knows it there is evidence of a conspiracy stretching high into government. How high? Well, that of course varies from one conspiracy movie to the next.

I couldn’t help but notice that one of the methods of death early on here was later borrowed by the series House of Cards (U.S. version). But there are only so many ways of making possible murders look like accidents or suicides, so perhaps it was coincidental. The acting and the writing were fine, however familiar the story seemed. It just felt like it wouldn’t have taken much originality to alter the plot to separate it from all the other journalistic investigations of government corruption.

Good movie, great cast and interesting plot.

A movies as they used to be when interesting thrillers were on the screens with higher frequency.

Watching a Solid, Well-Done Film Like STATE: Like Watching a Good Athlete or Outstanding Performer! They Make it Look So Easy!
From PASTO, COLOMBIA-Via: L. A. CA; CALI, COLOMBIA+ORLANDO, FL ———————The ONLY Tony Kiss Castillo on FaceBook!————

Tried to avoid having much in the way of expectations for STATE of PLAY, but it was hard to be oblivious to the all the general good buzz. Also, hard not to know beforehand that the cast is exceptional and that it’s getting relatively high ratings and strong reviews. Still, other than that, didn’t really want to find out any more! Watching a solid, well-done film like STATE, is like watching a good athlete or an outstanding performerThey all make it look SO EASY!

Just take an interesting, dynamic story; convert that into a cohesive, believable sounding screenplay; do your casting well, so you get a cast that can breathe life into the characters; craft the music to heighten the mood/ambiance at hand; edit the scenes for maximum impact and always know where you’re going and be sure you take the movie in the direction of your vision! Easy-PeasyJapanesey! Those are some of STATE’s pluses.

Like any movie it did have some minuses. I’ll try and go over both. A powerhouse cast, that doesn’t disappoint: Russell Crowe, Ben Affleck, Helen Mirren, Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright Penn, Jason Bateman, and Jeff Daniels WOW! Did the A-list want IN on this project, or what?!? Although Crowe does a fine job, he falls a little short of true excellence. A difficult task, attempting to shine when surrounded by ALL that talent! One surprise: Ben Affleck, not exactly on my favorite “actors” list, turns in a deviously devilish performance as the congressman who is keenly aware of his media image and how to protect it.

But the big jaw-dropper here is Jason Bateman. His characterization fooled me completely! Had to wait for the credits to see who he was! His Uber- creepy-bottom-feeder-sleaze-ball was the film’s real revelation! STATE falls down a bit because it is very light in the new and original Department. Still, it is a very well-crafted, entertaining movie! How’s this for a chillingly ironic 10 year Date of authoring this review? SEP/11/2011

A gripping thriller
Since I haven’t seen the original mini-series on which this is based I can’t comment on how they compare. Watching this I didn’t think it felt like it had been cut down from six hour to two, it just meant to story got on at a cracking pace. The story opens with two apparently unconnected deaths; one a homeless man chased through the back streets of Washington then gunned down in an alley, the other a congressman’s aide who ended up in the tracks in front of an underground train. It soon emerges that the woman had been involved in an affair with the congressman and while most people assumed she committed suicide but as reporters Cal and Della of the Washington Globe investigate the two cases they discover they are linked and start to suspect both are part of a corporate conspiracy to discredit the Congressman who was a leading member of an investigation into a company that has been hoovering up billion dollar government security contracts. Cal knows the congressman from the time they were at college and despite Cal having had an affair with his wife the two still seem to be friends, this leads to some hard choices when he must decide whether or not to follow leads that could harm his friend.

I found this film to be gripping from start to finish and didn’t spot the twist until it was revealed at the end. The actors did a good job; it was nice to see a hero who was a bit of a slob… Russell Crowe certainly didn’t look as athletic as he did in Gladiator. Rachel McAdams did a fine job as Della, it was refreshing to have a story with a man and a woman working together and at no point was there any suggestion of a relationship between them that was anything but professional. Ben Affleck seemed fairly restrained, which suited his role as serious Congressman Stephen Collins. While much of the film involved running around chasing leads there was plenty of action and the fact that Cal was a reporter not a policeman or member of the security services meant he was unarmed which made certain scenes more tense than they would have been otherwise.
