Great characters but the pace just left me lethargic - this is more of a spy drama than a thriller. It does have tense moments, but it literally crawls along at times. Big names - Gary Oldman, Colin Firth and Tom Hardy - all are quite good, but, man, it was a chore at times to get through.

If you are having trouble sleeping dont hurt your body by taking sleeping pills just plop 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' into your dvd player and you will be asleep within minutes. One thing i cannot stand is when i see a film mainly due to the great actor packed cast and turns out to be a snoozefest. Gary Oldman, John Hurt (who is brilliant in this by the way) Tom Hardy (small but good performance) Toby Jones, Colin Firth to name a few all whose talents go wasted in this long boring snoozer. I wasnt impressed that's for sure!

I'll admit, 2.5 stars seems low, but it gets taht rating because I couldn't understand what the actors were saying on-screen, which then made it a lot harder to understand the minutia of the film. I get that main plot, there is a Soviet agent in MI6 and Gary Oldman is brought out of (forced) retirement to find him. But, other than that, I was pretty lost. I need to read the book.

"Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" by Yojimbo

An ex spy for MI6 is called out of retirement to uncover a Russian undercover agent in the top echelons of their organisation. The one thing that can be said in favour of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is that it reeks of quality. The exceptional ensemble cast present what can only be described as an acting master class and the direction, photography and production design are all top notch. The problem with the film lies with its script, but that's not to say that it's badly written; quite the contrary in fact. The dialogue is smart, the themes sophisticated and characters well drawn. The trouble lies with the fact that this Cold War world of secrecy, back stabbing and betrayal seems so alien in the internet age that it's quite difficult to involve yourself in the dense, convoluted story. I co...

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy review

So many characters, and yet it revolves around Control (John Hurt) the head of British Intelligence ("the Circus"), George Smiley, "Beggarman" (Gary Oldman), Percy Alleline, "Tinker" (Toby Jones), Bill Haydon, "Tailor" (Colin Firth), and Roy Bland, "Soldier" (Ciarán Hinds). Oliver Lacon (Simon McBurney) brings Smiley back from retirement to investigate a possible mole in the British Intelligence. The mole has been leaking genuine high-grade British intelligence to Polyakov. Some minor qualms this rater had were the overloaded figures, sluggish start and lack of a better character development. On a positive note, the performances were solid (Oldman was exceptional), score was fantastic and displayed crafty camerawork from the beginning. One of the best lines" "There is nothing genuine...
