For a movie that has been described by every source as a thriller with a political agenda, it doesn't deliver on either of those fronts. 'The Company You Keep' seems smarter and sophisticated, with an emphasis on realistic presentation, but it's just dull. Nothing much of interest happens for a good portion of the running time, making for a slow and un-engaging two hours. It's overcrowded with a surplus amount of recognizable actors, but most don't have much to do, only showing up for one or two scenes to little effect.

If you don't like overtly political movies for the same reason I don't, that they're too pushy and unrealistic, then you will still enjoy this movie. It's neither pushy nor unrealistic.

Just back from having watched this I was surprised. It was much better then I thought it was going to be. Solid thriller, Shia LaBeouf puts in a very, very good performance as a young reporter. Redford is also good. I would recommend this film without question.

Dull Company

Seeking to combine a chase movie with a detective story, the film is bogged down by superfluous characters, caricatured villains, and a third-act that feels more like a soap-opera than a suspense picture. I wouldn’t go so far as to say the film has a bad script, but it does have a clunky one. What makes this even more egregious is that ‘Company’ is filled to the brim with great veteran actors such as Stanley Tucci, Richard Jenkins, Julie Christie, and Susan Surandon (to name a few…), which almost always indicates that the producers have less faith in the script than they do that a Justice League film will actually be made (we all know it won’t).

I don’t want to make out that this was a bad film, though. In its own unambitious and minor way, it’s reasonably entertaining. It could be arg...

The Company You Keep

The Company You Keep (2013) Decades ago a radical student terrorist group named, “The Weather Underground,” set off bombs and robbed banks to try and force the American government to end the war in Vietnam. Some of the terrorists were caught, but others are still on the run. Now, a newspaper reporter (Shia LaBeouf) begins digging up the story after one of “The Weather Underground” members is caught. By the time the reporter is finished, a number of lives will have changed. I generally like Redford's films, but I felt almost as if the amount of stars in this film, such as Anna Kendrick, who plays an FBI agent, was a little like stunt casting, making it sort of a lets see how many stars want to work for Redford, and therefore prop up a script that has huge holes in it. The film moves along ...
