MOVIE REVIEW

Absolute Power is an intriguing, complex, original story with a basis on corruption of power. It contains much more suspense, action, and mystery than the novel, but, at the same time, stays a political thriller.

The ending isn't very climatic but much more realistic than that of full-blown action movies. Full movie review »
