What we think

Official Secrets unfolds as a cross between a espionage flick and a Spotlight-esque journalism thriller, though there is admittedly something more workmanlike – something a bit television movie – about this film when compared to Hood’s previous efforts.

What others think

Hood’s major ace is Keira Knightley, whose rousing lead performance adds a much-needed fire, igniting the pedestrian-level drama around her.
Benjamin Lee The Guardian
[The film] may tell a story worth memorializing, especially today, but it never rises to the heights of its lofty aspirations.
Jude Dry IndieWire
If it’s let down by a simplistic take on its complex subject matter, it’s still an entertaining slice of recent history celebrating an unsung British hero.
