I won't discuss any of the historical fact and accuracies and I have no intention of discussing any of the conspiracy theories. I am simply interested in the film as such. Now let's take a look at it.
First of all, the story - since it is based on true events and some scarce evidence, it is coherent and quite easy to follow. The two hours pass by quickly, the pacing is alright and it manages to hold your interest. It doesn't really focus much on Diana, rather on the investigation.
The acting is nothing to write home about, it is on the TV level. No one here will win an Oscar, but that was never the intention here.
The only thing that bothered me here was the romance between the two main characters. It felt shoehorned in and was unbelievable. The film could have done without it.
Approach it with an open mind, don't take it too seriously and bare in mind that some of it could be true.
