I expected a little bit more since this is a De Niro movie. But, it still had a chilling scene, and a surprise ending.

The start of the CIA and all the cloak and dagger spy moves is interesting, but it moves at such a glacial pace in this film it takes all the fun out of it. I know the CIA is full of emotionless robots, but they really outdid themselves.

Different kind of spy movie

The CIA has all the answers to everything except how to be human. In the height of the Cold War, the CIA is formed to save the American way of life from the communists. One man, Edward Wilson (Matt Damon) sacrifices everything for his love of the USA. This movie depicts a depressing story about happiness and how it is never found by this man who Russia calls "Mother".

Trust no one. This is the premises of the whole movie, and directory Robert De Niro does a good job of showing how this lack of trust makes being happy impossible. It is refreshing to see a movie about a secret government agency that didn't involve high-tech inventions and crazy action sequences. Instead, the film is more about the drama of loosing everything that is important in a game where there are no winners. The mo...
