Shock and Awe

Description
The film is based on the true events of Knight Ridder journalists who were the only ones who 'got it right' in the lead-up to the 2003 Iraq War when they questioned the true nature of the Bush White House's justification for the conflict.

If this swift, entertaining film, set during the post-9/11 run-up to the Iraq war, brashly leans left, it has history on its side as well as, it seems, the interests of our soldiers.

The filmmaking here is so pedestrian, flat-footed and overly-obvious as to leave Shock and Awe one of those second-rate dramatic movies that make you wish that it had been a top-notch documentary instead.

Are we supposed to take this as some sort of cautionary tale about what happens when governments and journalists fail in their duty to tell the truth? I'm afraid we're long past those particular warning lights, Mr. Reiner.

Though at times the reporters seem too prescient, and the script suggests an exaggerated awareness of future history, this is an entertaining film about a frustrating situation.

It... captures an aspect of journalism not often portrayed: the fear of being wrong when the conclusions of your reporting break from those of your competitors.
