Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: When the revolution turns real, the film finally collapses under the burden of implausibility.
Fresh: If you think the spy-thriller genre has been streamlined and spoofed and subverted until nothing new can be done to it, think again.
Fresh: Very talky -- fortunately, with actors like these and a script by Andrew Davies, Boorman and Le Carre himself, the talk is frequently good.
Fresh: Rich but uneven.
Great Independent Film
If you like real movies, you will love this. Instead of a cookie cutter film, there is a real story, plot, and cool twist. The protagonist, and antagonist are acted out really well. Trying not to give too much away, but if you enjoy great films, you will truly enjoy this one. This film was before "Matador" (I think).
boring? Not if you pay attention.
No explosions. No gadgets. But there is a plot that is both funny and captivating. Great movie for those who dont like to be spoonfed their plots.
Excellent plot, great spy movie...
