Breach

Breach

I fully expected something would be wrong with this movie: Why else would they release it in February, a virtual cinematic dead zone? Well, this is one of the better spy movies I’ve ever seen, right up there with The Falcon and the Snowman. Chris Cooper needs to be remembered during the next awards season for his amazing portrayal of Robert Hanssen, one of the most notorious traitors in American history. This guy is scary, a soulless hypocrite who sells secrets to the Russians and gets people killed in the process. Ryan Phillippe delivers strong work as Eric O’Neill, an FBI-agent wannabe who is basically instructed to spy upon a spy. Laura Linney, who can be so bad at times, is excellent as O’Neill’s superior. The film is a bit heavy-handed in spots, but whenever it drags, Cooper comes to the rescue with virtually every moment he spends on screen. This is a great performance.
