    Surprisingly good movie. I thought it was going to be run of the mill going in, but it was a really well written screenplay. The twists and turns were good, and I loved the whole death of the newspaper aspect. Russell Crowe and Rachel McAdams had good chemistry.

    The only puzzling thing was Jason Bateman as a bad guy. Jason Bateman should not be playing sleezy bad guys.

    Bateman was more of a sleazy opportunist than a bad guy. I love him in those obnoxious roles.
    Good film.
