If you were alive in 1996, you probably remember the titular security guard’s name. He found the bomb that exploded during the Olympics in Atlanta. This film details how his life was shattered after he went from becoming a life-saving hero to the FBI’s #1 suspect. As is often the case with films directed by Clint Eastwood, there’s more information than passion. The performances are all solid (with Kathy Bates proving especially effective). The complexities of the case are laid out with plenty of blame, but the toll it took never delves the depths of emotion (even though there are some tearful moments). Like several other recent fact-based films, this is more a fascinating glimpse of a historical event, than a moving drama.
