DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller - This is not a movie for those who demand action, because there's very little. It's primarily a psychological thriller with some interesting plot twists and some suspense. It's probably going to appeal more to the adults who can appreciate the interesting story.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Very Good "From the get-go, ''The Recruit'' is one of those thrillers that delights in pulling the rug out from under you, only to find another rug below that.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Above Average "In a misguided attempt to provide a few too many twists and turns, Roger Donaldson's otherwise enjoyable thriller takes a detour into a sinkhole from which it never escapes.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Above Average "The Recruit is so well directed and acted that only a churl such as myself would question its sanity. It's the kind of movie you can sit back and enjoy, as long as you don't make the mistake of thinking too much.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Average "Nothing is ever what it seems, but still, nothing's very compelling in The Recruit, a less-than-middling melodrama whose subject matter and talent never click as much as its credits portend.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

I'm pleasantly surprised to see that teens and young adults enjoyed "The Recruit" as much as the adults. I thought the minimal action would be a problem.

You'll notice that there aren't many adult opinions of "Fantastic." Most of the opinions are either "Excellent" or "Very Good," with very few lower opinions. To me this indicates a very strong movie with wide appeal, but not likely a major hit. Chances are you will find this movie to be very entertaining and certainly worth seeing, but probably not a movie you will want to own later.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Al Pacino does a great job as usual. There's some suspense and some great plot twists. I found it to be very entertaining and interesting to see how things might work at the CIA. However, it's probably going to be enjoyed most by adults due to the minimal action it contains. I recommend The Recruit to adults who don't demand a car chase or explosion every few minutes.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
For the first time, the CIA's infamous closed doors are opened, giving an insider's view into the Agency: how trainees are recruited, how they are prepared for the spy game, and what they learn to survive. James Clayton (Colin Farrell) might not have the attitude of a typical recruit, but he is one of the smartest graduating seniors in the country – and he's just the person that Walter Burke (AL PACINO) wants in the Agency. James regards the CIA's mission as an intriguing alternative to an ordinary life, but before he becomes an Ops Officer, James has to survive the Agency's secret training ground, where green recruits are molded into seasoned veterans. As Burke teaches him the ropes and the rules of the game, James quickly rises through the ranks and falls for Layla (BRIDGET MOYNAHAN), one of his fellow recruits. But just when James starts to question his role and his cat-and-mouse relationship with his mentor, Burke taps him for a special assignment to root out a mole. As the suspense builds toward a gripping climax, it soon becomes clear that the CIA's old maxims are true: "trust no one” and "nothing is what it seems."
