    This movie gave a heart and souls to Russell Poole which we haven't seen. Johnny Depp and Forest Whitaker chemistry was great but when he was onscreen but when Johnny and Violeta scene it was pure and honest and I felt her pain.

    Riveting from beginning to end. Eye opening to the corruption of people in power and authority.

    Great acting by Johnny Depp and Whitaker. They had good energy together and told a great true story. Definitely a must see! #SupportJohnnyDepp #JohnnyDeppIsInnocent

    City of Lies is a messy and generic film. The performances are decent. Johnny Depp and Forest Whitaker are solid in their roles. The story had potential to be interesting. But it just isn’t. It’s very poorly told. I felt like I was watching a string of scenes then a full story. The ending especially is very messy and all over the place. The direction is bland, and the script is worse. Overall, I didn’t care for this. Outside of two good performances there really isn’t anything worthwhile. You can definitely skip out on this.

    I liked the theories it put forward, connecting the Rampart Division scandal especially.
