Interesting but not well executed For being such a long movie, I feel like there are a lot of pieces of the puzzle that were not filled in, that should have explained how certain things happened. Interesting topic but the plot just wasn't fully executed so that the viewer could understand how and why everything happened.
It feels real. Everything about this makes forces you to see both sides of the coin. The pain becomes personal and it makes every scene hard to watch and impossible to look at the same time. This movie a permanent my permanent collection.
Interesting and realistic I liked it, but not very action packed for a spy movie. Very well made. Shows the reality of the start of the CIA. Wilson was one of the first CIA agents. There is a docu on him that I saw sometime ago, but not sure how much of this movie captured reality. Great cast, but no Oscar performances, even so it was a good movie and worth the time.
The Good Shepard Just excellent. Thrilling yet intriguing holding interest film. Matt Damon at one of his best acting performance... Hard to say that he is such an outstanding actor with any roll he plays. Worth watching.
Big oil means big money. Very big money. And that fact unleashes corruption that stretches from Houston to Washington to the Mideast and ensnares industrialists, princes, spies, politicos, oilfield laborers and terrorists in a deadly, deceptive web of move and countermove.
