OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 164 moviegoers:
TEENS:Great Opinions! Both males and females enjoyed "Breach" very much. Only a small percentage rated it somewhat low. Highly Recommended!
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The male opinions are GREAT! All of them really enjoyed this movie. Highly Recommended!
The ladies didn't enjoy it quite as much. There aren't very many high opinions and there are lots of OK/average opinions. That's not a good combination.
ADULTS:Very Good Opinions! Both males and females enjoyed this movie about the same. The opinions are not quite great because the "Fantastic" opinions are too few and there are too many opinions of "Good." Most will enjoy "Breach" very much.
When young Eric O'Neill (Phillippe) is promoted out of his low-level
surveillance job and into the headquarters of the Federal Bureau of
Investigation, his dream of becoming a full-fledged agent is on the verge of
becoming reality. Even more impressive, O'Neill is hand picked to work for
renowned operative Robert Hanssen (Cooper) within "information
assurance," a new division created to protect all classified FBI
But O'Neill is quickly confronted with the true reason behind his hire:
Hanssen is the sole subject of a long-term, top-secret investigation, a
suspected mole made all the more dangerous by the sheer global import of the
information he is charged with protecting. The Bureau asks O'Neill to use
Hanssen's growing trust and slowly draw the traitor out of deep cover. Engaged
in a lethal game of spy-versus-spy without the benefit of a cover story or
backup, O'Neill finds himself fighting to bring down Hanssen before the
treacherous double-agent can destroy O'Neill, his family and the nation they are
both sworn to serve.
