This movie has an amazing story and impressive plot. It is a brilliant spy movie without compromise. I was really amazed and completely hooked after 10 minutes.
To be fair, I am more than a little partial to spy movies, and obviously the amount of action and nudity did not do anything to decrease my interest. Nonetheless, I truly think this is a great movie.
The intricately conducted plot and all the small hints on how they deduct certain fact made me cling to the screen, and still, I have to admit, I oversaw a few things here and there. I most certainly will have to watch it again in the not so distant future to see if I can catch up with the rest.
Jennifer Lawrence plays the leading role. Her acting and portraying of the character reminds me of some of the other roles I have seen her in. So at first I was a little disappointed in her performance, but then I realized how perfect that was for the character. Disappointed therefore turned into amazed. The development of the characters is believable and I just love how she is in the end (attempting to avoid spoilers).
Joel Edgerton is pretty good as well, and Matthias Schoenaerts is not that bad either.
I have always loved Jeremy Irons, and yet again he proves that he is a good choice for his type of character.
If you like movies about espionage, double and triple agents, cold war politics and so on, this movie is perfect.
