The Good, the Bad and the Dark Truth:
• An intensifying and dark mystery thriller which leads up to a twisted surprise ending that has been carefully built up and is completely unexpected.
• The acting is solid throughout, with special mention to Charlize Theron, Christina Hendricks and Corey Stoll, who are completely outstanding.
• The film is almost on par with the book, which is surprising because film adaptations usually don't fare well when compared to the original book version.
• Charlize Theron replaced Amy Adams in the lead role when Adams became unavailable after the project was green-lit.
