Movie Reviews

  • there's a strange fillip of senior-action payoff in a Ukrainian hospital at the end, but by then you may be too worn out to harvest its moral significance - let alone admire the twist ending
    by Ella Taylor [NPR ]
  • the suspense builds nicely, the twists come as surprises and its key characters are vivid enough
    by Kirk Honeycutt [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • the remake ups the adrenaline factor, and features strong perfs across the board, yet feels bogged down by a weighty love triangle and a subject that merits more than the old-school good vs. evil approach
    by Jordan Mintzer [Variety ]
  • the movie demonstrates, compellingly, why the answer is no
    Review rate : B+ by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • set up at the beginning by an extraordinarily chilling scene that is replayed in Rashomon-like ways throughout the film but that never loses its withering power over Rachel, Stephan, David or, as importantly, us
    4 of 5 by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times ]
  • relentlessly paced and artfully lensed and constructed, it's a first-rate thriller that explores loyalty, duty to country and self, and the price of deception with skill and razor-sharp precision
    3.5 of 4 by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star ]
  • predictably, the holes in the narrative set us up for a twist or three, but, in balance, it's a pleasure to be back in the wet alleys and spy-patrolled streets of the GDR, however vague they seem without '60s black-and-white cinematography
    by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice ]
  • is nothing more than a gritty thriller with a highbrow pedigree
    3 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News ]
  • is definitely worth an audience's investment
    3 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • a nerve-wracking and entertaining Hollywood remake
    3 of 4 by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel ]
  • a compact, reasonably clever and sometimes piquant entertainment, but they also make you aware that it could have been more
    by A.O. Scott [New York Times ]
  • 4 of 5 Reviewed by Bill Gibron [Filmcritic.com ]
