Slow but worth watching,
This review is from: The Ghost [DVD] (DVD)
The word "thriller" doesn't accurately describe this film; The Ghost is more of a drama film. Nonetheless it still worth seeing because of the superb storyline and acting. Ewan McGregor is brilliantly cast as the writer forced into an impossible position and Pierce Brosnan is equally good as the former PM of Great Britain who committed some... questionable acts whilst in office.
Obviously this is inspired by the events of the Iraq war and the character of Adam Lang is an obvious reflection of Tony Blair, however this manages to avoid being a personal attack towards Blair and remains a tense, if slightly dull, political drama. And with an unforgettable storyline it is easy to get through the boring parts because the rest of the film is just mesmerising. The Ghost is definitely worth seeing for those who can put up with slow, well crafted dramas.
