The story is about Explores the relationship between WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and Daniel Domscheit-Berg and early colleague and supporter. Yet as the websites growth and influence spreads, it leads to an irreparable break between the one-time friends. This movie had floped hard at the box office and am aright with that I mean the movie is not that Bad of a film but I think the message in the movie keeps forcing the the message on you.

'The Fifth Estate' does well to inform of the exploits of the now infamous Wikileaks. The entire film is told from the perspective of the co-founders and most of the drama permeates from their tested friendship. Cumberbatch and Bruhl once again dominate the screen with their performances, each bringing a deep sense of immersion into character. The problems lie with the overall repetitive nature of the film. Having multiple encounters in similar settings, with similar outcomes, makes for a slightly tedious trek. The unnecessarily long third act only intensifies the need for a quicker resolution. All of the mixings are there, they just aren't laid out in the best order.
