Synopsis

In this engrossing action thriller, top MIT graduate James Clayton (Colin Farrell) is pursued by veteran CIA recruiter Walter Burke (Al Pacino) to join the Agency. Burke is impressed with Clayton’s smarts and cocky attitude. During training, he learns the ropes from Burke and falls in love with fellow recruit Layla (Bridget Moynahan), who turns out to be the suspected mole. James receives a special assignment; he must find out to whom she is feeding information. He is hurt by this turn of events, but he reluctantly agrees to accept the assignment to the point of taking Layla to bed, making love in a nearly nude scene. Soon, however, it becomes clear to James that what he has learned in training is true: “trust no one” and “nothing is as it seems.”

Dove Review

Solid acting and an edge-of-your-seat plot make this movie worth seeing, but bad language, sexual content and violence lower its acceptability rating.
