This high-profile... documentary about the Cambridge Analytica scandal is... frequently gripping, gorgeous to watch, occasionally thought-provoking, always entertaining and yet, ultimately, a tiny bit vapid.

The Great Hack isn't revealing much that hasn't been reported elsewhere, but it's powerful in the ways it does so.
