So before this weekend’s Oscars, I’ve been racing around to see more Academy nominees and just rented Bridge of Spies. For those who are fans of Tom Hanks, you won’t be disappointed.
Based upon a true story, the movie is about an everyday lawyer who is asked to serve his country representing a spy from another country and eventually ends up alone in a foreign country trying to save the lives of two hostage Americans. Not you normal Cold War era movie, but nonetheless a really nice story with lots of dialogue.
This is one of those movies where you watch the end and they have you read about what happened to the real people in the movie. I would say if you loved the movie, “Argo” then you will find this similarly enjoyable.
I give this movie 3.5 erections (out of 5)
