Critic Consensus: Official Secrets has a familiar structure and an obvious if worthy message, but rises on the strength of Keira Knightley's powerful performance.

Critic Reviews for Official Secrets
Knightley shines... in a performance that balances conviction and soul baring, and is all the more genuine for its lack of showiness.
The script, based on a book by Marcia and Thomas Mitchell, keeps layering in complexity, refusing to go dumb. And Knightley's performance gets steelier as she struggles to overcome her fears
[Knightley's] smart not to play Gun as the noble martyr, but merely as an ordinary, frustrated citizen who makes a split-second decision.
[H]obbled by fidelity, spatchcocked by earnestness, this film never takes off.
While it'll do nothing to restore trust in the august bodies that rule the land, it's a pacy, palm-clammying watch.
