Amazing Story, Nicely Presented
This was an interesting movie, and very well-acted. It had to be, because there was very little action and only a little suspense. Like the old Columbo” television series, you knew who the crook was right away. What you didn’t know was how the cops were going to catch him.
In this case, the question was how the FBI was going to finally nab Robert Hanssen, the biggest spy in the history of the United States. He finally was caught in 2001 after about 15 years of giving tons of information to the Soviet Union.
Exactly how much damage Hanssen did isn’t public knowledge which hurts the film because you never get a real grasp of what a “bad guy” this man was and, hence, you don’t feel as satisfied at the ending of the movie as you should. In fact, this film almost makes him look sympathetic at times. I fell into that trap myself a few times, in a way feeling sorry for this man, so well portrayed by actor Chris Cooper. If knew a little more of what harm this man did, there were no sympathy.
Anyway, the acting is superb led by Cooper, of course, as Hanssen and ably supported by Ryan Phillippe as FBI clerk “Eric O’Neill,” who brought him down, and Laura Linney as FBI agent “Kate Burroughs,” who recruited O’Neill for the job. Those three along with Caroline Dehavemas, who plays Hanssen’s wife, “Julianna,” are the main characters and dominate the film.
This is a low-key film. Don’t look for James Bond-spy-type action and humor. This is the gritty real thing. It’s also another “based on a true story” movie so how much of this is true, I don’t know. Only the key people involved know for sure. I could see they really wanted to emphasize Hanssen”s strong Catholic beliefs and, naturally being Hollywood, demonize the man for that.
The first third of this film is primarily showing his strong feeling for the Catholic Church and disdain for those aren’t are weak ones. The filmmakers subtly put in their agendas by making sure they portray Hanssen as against Liberal causes. The left-wing slants are normal for filmmakers so I ignored those and just enjoyed the excellent acting and interesting story. It’s amazing Hanssen got away with what he did for so long. As he himself says at the end, he might have helped at least tighten up our own security by showing how many holes were in it. Hopefully, that has changed. It’s equally as amazing that a young kid who wasn’t even agent-status could bring this spy down.
