Academy Award®-winning director Oliver Stone (JFK, Born on the Fourth of July) tackles the most important true story of the 21st century. Snowden, the politically-charged thriller reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the controversial figure who exposed shocking illegal surveillance activities by the National Security Agency and became one of the most wanted men in the world.

  • Good movie - and so sad

    Edward Snowden did a good thing and I pray he gets to come home one day. But, even if he does, he will always be looking over his shoulder. He gave up any kind of "normal" life and that makes me so sad for him. Big Brother will always be watching him... and all of us as well and there is nothing anyone can really do about it. This is the world we live in..... Just live a good honest life. This movie was much better than Ctizenfour as it tells so much more. Well done!!
  • Great movie

    I was always unsure about how I felt about what Snowden did. I understand why he did what he did and I feel bad that he is stuck in Russia, I guess when you work for the government there is no way to report grievances without fear of reprisal. Hopefully one day Snowden will be able to come home.

    Anyone who is a freedom fighter/truther/awakened person, I'm pretty sure you'd love this movie. Ps Edward isn't a traitor he did this to wake you up sheeple up to the truth on what the government do behind closed doors. Wanna blame someone? blame those to lied and keep secrets.
  • Accurate Portrayal

    This is not a movie that preaches the words of the NSA and other US government sections unquestionably, this tells an accurate and up to date view of the story. Its not too technical and offers a suprisengly complete perception of the situation smoothly sliding ethics into the dialog. The vision of the movie is well. Also, I vaguely recall them involving Snowden in the production.
  • Unusual but good.

    I don't get the # of bad reviews on this flick. Saw it at a friends house and was totally believable ( even taking into account the inaccuracies) but that's ok. It's a MOVIE ppl for entertainment and a short time to deliver. And deliver this movie did. Loved it! 🤓👍👍👍👍✅

    I watch a lot of movies. I don't choose the movies by the reviews of rotten tomatoes because I don't agree and I strongly feel iTunes should get rid of them and we the viewers vote. I usually choose a movie because of the actor or if it's based on real stories and the producer. This is an incredible movie. Great acting, a story well told. I am aware of what Big Brother is doing but while I was watching it I posed it a few times to text my adult kids specific things that I was learning. I have seen the Documentary and it was good but this movie it's entertaining and one can learn a lot. I bought it considering I never watch a movie twice.
