  • cool cold war stuff

    • 5/5/10

    the movie starts out with a nice shot of Wash DC (though there are better Washington shots in "no way out" and "Charlie Wilson's war"). later you can go back into the times when the Berlin wall was still in place. in the eastern block agents hunt each other as usual. The film also throws in some handsome german RAF style terrorists which is quite well done cinematically.Still, is aspect is done better by now in "The RAF Syndrome" with even more handsome cool terrorists.One could have expected something along the lines of John le Carre's material and it is somewhat close. No James Bond style gimmicks, pure run-off-the-mill handguns. Still, real agents wouldprobably use different models. But maybe the movie wanted to stay compatible with those Michael Caine secret agent movies from the sixties, where they also used guns with little ballistic performance for no reason.
