George Clooney, USA, 2011o

Idealistic campaign worker Stephen Meyers has sworn to give all for Governor Mike Morris, a wild card presidential candidate whose groundbreaking ideas could change the political landscape. However, a brutal Ohio primary threatens to test Morris' integrity. Eventually, Stephen gets trapped in the down-and-dirty battle of politics and finds himself caught up in a scandal where the only path to survival is to play both sides.

Mit der gleichen Faszination, der geradezu diebischen Freude, mit der man Clooneys Coups in der Ocean's-Serie folgte, schaut man hier zu, wie wir, die Bürger, das Wahlvolk vorgeführt werden von Clooney und der großen Wahlkampfmaschine. Politik ist ein schmutziges Spiel, da soll es wenigstens hin und wieder Spaß machen. (Auszug)

Fritz Göttler

Un thriller, enfin, auquel de longues minutes sont nécessaires avant qu'il ne se lance et qui mise moins sur les péripéties elles-mêmes que sur des mécanismes dramatiques éprouvés et, surtout, sur une distribution éblouissante.

Pascal Mérigeau

Il n'y a pas un bout de gras, et la durée du film est une heureuse surprise autant qu'un rappel bienvenu : une histoire, même complexe, peut se raconter d'une façon simple, directe et percutante.

Gérard Delorme

Ce film brillant concentre tout ce qu'on aime dans le grand cinéma américain : des dialogues pertinents, des comédiens impeccables, un sens du rythme, de la narration, du cadrage.
