Running Time: 103 min.

Kevin Spacey was cut out of the film and replaced just a few weeks ago, with significant material re-shot and edited into the feature. While a critic never wants such reports to influence him, the story has all been so public that it’s difficult not to acknowledge it to some degree.

This isn’t a small change. The character is hugely important to events and seems to appear in almost a...
