Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (Movie Review)




"OVERVIEW: Things aren't always as they seem in the Oscar®-nominated, suspenseful, and stylish thriller from director Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In), based on the classic novel by John le Carré. Focus Features' Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy will be available on Blu-ray™Combo Pack with UltraViolet™,on DVD,on Digital Download and On-Demand March 20, 2012, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. At the height of the Cold War, Britain's Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), a.k.a. MI6 and code-named the Circus, has been compromised. An ever-watchful former top lieutenant and career spy, George Smiley (Gary Oldman, The Dark Knight, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix ), is called out of retirement by the government to help identify and track a suspected mole at the top of the agency. The list of suspects is narrowed to five men. Even before the startling truth is revealed, the emotional and physical tolls on the players enmeshed in the deadly international spy game will escalate... Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is Academy Award®-nominated for Best Actor (Gary Oldman), Best Adapted Screenplay (Bridget O'Connor & Peter Straughan), and Best Original Score (Alberto Iglesias); and is nominated for 11 BAFTA Awards including Best Film and Best Actor.

Also starring Oscar® winner Colin Firth (The King's Speech) with Benedict Cumberbatch ("Sherlock"), David Dencik (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Tom Hardy (Inception), Ciarán Hinds (The Debt), Oscar® nominee John Hurt (Midnight Express), Toby Jones (The Hunger Games), and Mark Strong (Robin Hood), Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is "a pleasurably sly and involving puzzler" (Manohla Dargis, The New York Times) and showcases "easily one of the year's best pictures – Gary Oldman gives a performance that is flawless in every detail." (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone)."



Our Opinion: I have to say this was not my cup of tea. No romance, comedy, nothing for me. Mr. K on the other hand loved it. He watched with his eyeballs glued to the television the entire time.  I did enjoy the actors and thought they had great character but as for the movie I think it is defiantly defiantly for men. Mr. K says he would give Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy two thumbs up thought.

I was not compensated for this review. I was offered a product or products to give my honest and fair opinion. You experience and opinion may vary.
