Libby teaches at a university but 4 years ago she was top aide to VP Rachel and was part of a total victory action. Rachel is now US president and worried about Libby keeping quiet. Libby also has a student spying on her.
2 men are chained up in a basement. The captor has cameras aimed at them and is streaming it on the internet - turning it into a "trial" on the held, retired judge's last court case. The viewers become the jurors.
Former top U.S. security adviser Elizabeth "Libby" Lamm (Sumpter) is threatened by associates from her dark past including Rachel Burke (Curtis), a steely, commanding politician with an unwavering knack for achieving her goals. Colluding with Rachel is Adrian, an unyielding, patriotic chief of staff. Martin (Tavassoli) harbors another type of obsession with Libby in this story of betrayal and regret.Written by
A very interesting and important topic presented (and tragically cheapened) by mostly mediocre actors and a few terrible ones (e.g. drunk guy at party), a decent director, and a very weak script which is riddled with cartoonish characters and ridiculous elements.
Thriller? More like snooze fest. Tries hard to portray Dick Cheney, Dubya, Condi Rice, etc. but doesn't have the tools to pull it off. One Jamie Lee Curtis does not a good movie make. Go see Vice instead.
