I really had high hopes for this one, especially since the RT score was off the charts. I also typically enjoy films that are based on real life events. This one was a bit disappointing for me, though. I felt the first half was drawn out to fill running time, and even though the second half was more interesting, it didn't even come close to living up to some of the descriptors that I saw used, such as "chilling" and "astonishing". Overall it played like a glorified 60 Minutes or 20/20 piece to me...I'm not sure why this needed to be made into a film, and for the most part I found it to be pretty boring. Most people seemed to really like it, though, so in this case I'll encourage you to not allow my opinion prevent you from seeing it. Even though it didn't do much for me, evidence suggests that most people thought it lived up to expectations.
The Imposter - 6.2/10
