Critic's Review Heading

USA Today Full Review
Good Though you know from the start just how it's going to end, Breach, based on the true story of a treasonous FBI operative, is an edge-of-the-seat thriller.

OPINION GRAPH

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

Moviegoer Opinions:

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.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
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 Intelligence.

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.
