Well-paced, well-acted, entertaining film with likable protagonist.

It's never boring, just slightly slower than it could've been.

The thing moves at a solid speed, always remaining engaging, and it has a surprising amount of character, too.

It's a compelling and dark chapter in the United States' 21 Century history and director Scott Z.

I found this movie riveting and well paced.

More leftist propaganda justification for shredding the Constitution .

It is therefore not always that exciting and at times it is somewhat frustrating, but it does in due course tell a fascinating story through careful editing and fine performances by Driver and Bening.

Some might find the films tad stale in parts with a deliberate slow pace that only adds to the tense nature of the film.

Absorbing .

Compelling and relevant .

"The Report" is easy to disappear in, it's an engaging re-telling of a morally messed up events & through a convincing performance by Adam Driver we are able to identify with the subject in question.

There are scenes where I found myself completely invested and others where I was slightly bored.

Even so, the picture is entertaining pretty much throughout.

from engaging in torture, regardless of what the country's enemies do.

Compelling .

Focused and Engaging Take on an Important Subject Matter .

A history lesson in American politics and terrorism with a little dig at propaganda filmmaking and journalism, and a big spotlight on the CIA's misconduct.

I get tired of canned blockbusters & "vehicles" & James Bond reruns, long for real drama & substance & relevance -- this film offers all 3 of the latter qualities and it is exciting as well, had me on seat's-edge thruout.

After a while they caused me to consider completing the film to be a chore as opposed to be a learning experience or an entertaining two hours.

Don't Waste Your Time .

Probably the most intense move I have seen this year .

Intense .

A quick, riveting, thought provoking film brimming with authenticity, offering viewers an opportunity to question law and order.

The 2015 Oscar-winning Spotlight is much more interesting and heroic viewing while it also informs about exciting investigative reporting.

Complete waste of time and total and come to garbage.

Anyone who loves and follows politics will find this film informative and enjoyable.

I can't exactly rave about the movie as a whole, but it's worth watching for the story alone.

Compelling, Worrisome, Timely .

Its script and format agree with its mission: the truth must be told, regardless (in this case of boring the viewer).

As a film this is a well-paced, well-acted, entertaining film with likable lead.

Feels like propaganda .

Very fascinating movie.

Intense !.

impressive and exciting .

There were times where is was going at a good pace, and then slow down.

Acting is great, but script feels like political propaganda which makes democrats look like angels (the good guys) and republicans look like devils (stupid thugs).

It's worth watching for Driver's performance alone, observing a man who loves doing his job and excels at it.

Yawn...
