    Demasiado envoltorio para tan discreto contenido. A ratos es, incluso, hasta un poco previsible. Me ha gustado mucho el personaje de McGregor que, creo, es lo que eleva un poco el nivel de la película.

    An engaging and tense thriller with an intriguing mystery and a stylish direction that bring to mind Polanski's finest works, and some scenes here are spectacular, especially the final sequence, while Ewan McGregor puts in a very strong performance.

    A pretty decent political thriller. The performances were good, the movie was shot very very well, and the ending is legendary. However, the middle of this movie was so boring. I had to watch it a number of times for a film class and every single time, I started to fall asleep about 45 minutes in. Still, worth it for the ending. And if you're into political stuff, you might like this a lot more than me.

    Roman Polanski struck cinematic gold again with his 2010 film, The Ghost Writer.

The simple job becomes much more complex when the former P.M. is charged with war crimes.

    Two men, caught up amidst political forces beyond their understanding, wishing for the best but hurtling towards the absolute worst, their death at the hands of people with much more power than them.

    A well-sewn story about contemporary politics with elements of conspiracy. Good scenes here and there, but separated by mostly boringness and unconvincing acting. Cinema-wise, I felt Ghost Writter pretty dull, but the plot manages to sustain it overall.
    The closing was quite good though.

    Although the movie felt very subdued, Polanski tells the story with such precision and focus that I got caught up in it. By the end I was nervous with anticipation for the outcome to unfold (and boy, did it ever unfold - what a ballsy and fantastic ending). I think what I loved most about it was Ewan McGregor. He's great as an everyman who gets wrapped up in a crazy situation, yet is able to barely keep his head above water, so to speak.

    For the ones that actually have read the book, the film offers no thrills. It's decent, though, but nothing more.
