Director: Steven Spielberg
Stars: Tom Hanks, Mark Rylance, Alan Alda
In the cold war, a lawyer, James B. Donovan is recruited by the CIA and involved in an intense negotiation mission to release and exchange a CIA U-2 spy-plane pilot, Francis G. Powers. The pilot was arrested alive after his plane was shot down by the Soviet Union during a mission and stays in the company of a KGB intelligence officer, Rudolf Abel, who was arrested for espionage in the US.
This movie was a little slow for me. It was an interesting story dealing with the Cold War. The directing was wonderful. Spielberg did an incredible job of creating the look and feel for the movie. The cast is the best that there is out there. You can never go wrong with Tom Hanks. Alan Alda is one of the best there is still working.
This was a good movie. If you are into the Cold War, then this is a movie for you. If you are not into war movies, you may still want to give this movie a chance. It is worth watching once, but I do not know about a repeat watch. Enjoy.
