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