All the President's Men is a compelling film that tells the tale of the two reports who were able to connect the Watergate break in with the White House. It is incredibly interesting story to follow, each interview and each conversation is made compelling by the actors and the spot on writing. It simply an interesting story to follow. The only part of the film that I think is dated is the ending which is insanely abrupt. Now this was purposeful because at the time it stopped where everyone pretty much knew the rest of the story, and I am sure it worked perfectly than, but today it seems lacking.

The detailed way in which this film unfolds is genius. It's not too heavy on the politics and manages to pull some serious thrills out of a well-known political scandal. Perfect performances by the leads.

Two of the greatest actors of their time come to life in this great movie of the two reporters who shock the nation. At times it is slow, but its biggest flaw is the confusion it creates. Who said what...? But, see it for history's sake.

Accurate Investigative Journalism

One of the most believable films to be based off of a true life occurrence. Not once does the level of authenticity break, or succumb to any noticeable truth stretching for dramatic purposes. The tangled nature of the Watergate Scandal is unraveled from the perspective of the reporters. This makes for an intriguing watch, as we are subject to firsthand investigative journalism. I was likened to approach. It wasn't necessarily a straight-forward 'political thriller', but it was still very much involving to witness the effort that goes into finding and writing the facts. I only had minor issues with the immense entanglement of the 'who' and 'why'. Even while giving my full attention, a little more subtle explanation would've been helpful.

I'm not a crook!

A political thriller that's good. When's the last time we had that?

Hoffman and Redford are fantastic as always. Their chemistry isn't the best, but it was enough to make me believe these were two intelligent guys stuck between a rock and a hard place. Nowhere for them to go, but continue with the project they have been leading.

The film is always very interesting and engaging, focusing on the aspects from a very peculiar standpoint, mostly from the perspective of the characters talking on the phone, instead of direct confrontational dialogue, which was a relief from the average thriller.
The way it was written allowed a lot of inclusion of humor. Although not too inventive at parts, the comedic relief was present somewhere in the mix.

I think what desperately needed to be empha...

All The President's Men review

One of the best factual conspiracy press related films regarding a scandal related to the Watergate scandal. Engaging from start to finish because of it's method of presenting the story, it's politics and ability of the press to present the truth. A fairly new reporter Bob Woodward (Robert Redford) and seasoned reporter Carl Bernstein (Dustin Hoffman) were assigned by their superior Ben Bradlee (Jason Robards) to cover and gather more information about the connection of the burglars to E. Howard Hunt, a former employee of the CIA, and President Richard Nixon's Special Counsel Charles Colson. Illegal fund raising were tackled including several personel involved in the Whitehouse. One of the best lines: Woodward - "I just don't get it; a CREEP secretary being scared, that's one thing. B...
