Dark Waters (2020) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
A true story of greed, corruption and corporate malpractice, Dark Waters is a solid, well made but very linear story that takes a rather traditional approach to telling a story we’ve heard many times before.  Thing is, in truth, there’s probably not a better way to telling this but following on from many similar films over the last decade you already get an idea of where it’s going whether you know the story or not and ultimately this lessons the impact.  Still it’s well made and the cast are great value. Certainly worth a watch.

Best Bit: Ruffalo is great

Cinema, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: The Insider, A Beautiful Mind, The People vs. Larry Flynt
