The solid ticking-clock biopic should perform respectably among serious-minded moviegoers, but lacks the oomph of a must-see.

But for its faults as a movie, the story is still compelling as a bit of history, and more so in the midst of a presidential administration that at times seems to be taking all the wrong lessons from Nixon.

The film is so dull. It gives no sense of the complexity of the man, in terms of both his personal and professional lives.
