Great CIA StoryReviewed in the United Kingdom on March 13, 2021
This is a great book and a very god mini series- the story is great interwoven with real characters (James Angleton ) . Special mention for Michael Keaton who ins great in every scene.
Possibly Michael Keaton's most outstanding roleReviewed in the United Kingdom on March 23, 2017
Entertaining stuff. Michael Keaton as James Jesus Angleton is outstanding. What an incredibly versatile and criminally underrated actor he is. This is so much better than The Good Shepherd. It should have won awards. It gives a fascinating insight into the world of the CIA. I pegged 'Sasha' from the start - but it didn't stop this being a thoroughly enjoyable view. The weak link is Chris O'Connell.
Amazing five star watch!! (bluray Region A)Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 29, 2011
I saw this on a trailer to another film and instantly ordered the blu ray US version. Without saying to much to ruin it for people that haven't seen it or to viewers who know little about the cold war, this is without a shadow of a doubt the best spy thriller made for cinema the story and plot is very detailed with vivid characters and the actors are very well cast. A very good blu ray for your collection and a series you can watch over and over and still enjoy! I'm very glad I brought this!
Fantastic view of the ciaReviewed in the United Kingdom on November 21, 2010
This is by far one of my favorite mini series that ive ever seen. It is up there with tinker tailor soldier spy and John Adams both in terms of acting and style. It shows the rise of the company, its friction with the KGB throughout the decades untill the fall of the soviet union. This story feels so authentic with its mixture of real and fictional characters that mix together seamlessly. All the potrayals are great especially michael keaton and alfred molina. They play the role of seasoned spymasters though both with different Characteristics. Keaton as James Angleton is spymaster who after a betrayal becomes completly lost in wilderness of mirrors. Molinas character of Harvey Torriti is a more active spy who is always in the field. This story is sort of a mixture of Fleming and Le Carre. It has a lot of action like Flemings work without the cliches and it has actual spy work like Le Carres work without all the cynicsm. Here the spies are potrayed as patriotic and dedicated but also human.

"Cold War at its best "Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 24, 2014
Sometimes refered as a bad miniseries, the fact is that this is probably one of the best films to show the CIA in its most pivotal moments. Following closely Robert Littel's novel it shows how a bunch of Yale guys fought the Reds. Sometimes in not so heroic ideals, we follow this tool of American foreign policy (mis)adventures in hot spots like Berlin, Budapest 1956, and the ill fated episode of the Bay of Pigs in 1961, in which JFK had a " profile of indecision " letting Cuban Brigade 2506 die in Playa Giron. CIA field operatives there acused Kennedy of cowardice. John Wayne failed to rescue Cuba. To this day the heritage of that fateful is still there.
