Not as good as I expected. Too many twists to keep up with.
Character development is unusually well developed.I expect that for those who prefer action in lieu of thought and are bored whenever their intellects are stretched even a little will have little to say that is positive. For those who wonder why anyone would spy on his own country or who wonder about any of the whys and wherefores of human behavior this movie is for them. The story is well told and is carefully paced so that one can digest and even feel drawn into the process.
Film is grasping. Chris Cooper completely embodied his character. Ryan Phillipe personified youthful, yet powerful, intelligence. The story,albeit factual, is different. To be a movie worth enjoying, the ending has to be real yet wonderful; Breach is both.
A really interesting and well-casted and acted psychological thriller that keeps you thinking and engaged throughout the entire length of the movie. Intriguing storyline. Highly recommended.
After 15 mins, I thought I was going to die. It's suppose to based on a true story but they made it so boring. This is like the 2d most boring movie i've even seen.
They tried to created a tension with this one... but I just didnt feel it. By the end of the movie I just didnt care anymore. Sorry... it didnt work.
Very good movie. Sort of psychological style with lots of guessing.
Pretty good show, slow at some points. Could use more action!
Best... movie... EVAR!!! LIKE ZOMG!!!!
To those of you who found this movie boring and/or horrible, I think I know what the problem was. You needed a BRAIN to really enjoy this top notch thriller. Perhaps the lack of poor dialogue, bad directing, fart jokes and overkill on CG is what`s throwing off your movie going enjoyment.
i thought breach was horrible all it is talking and very hard to follow ... it looks good in the trailers but the movie is nothing like what they advertise
This movie had an interesting plot, and even had a few twists. The movie wasn`t an action packed thrill-ride but did move at a reasonable pace and held my attention throughout. I actually don`t understand how people could have found it boring. I rate it a 3.5/5
The religious part of the movie made it especially boring
Top 5 in most BOOOORRRRIINNNGGG movies ever
WORST MOVIE EVER MADE..... DON`T BOTHER SEEING IT.. SPARE YOURSELVES!!
I thought the movie was really good. It IS a psychological thriller, and it was very well-acted. Chris Cooper is excellent, and even made me have sympathetic feelings towards Hanssen! I would say go and watch it.
Great movie ... just needed a better ending (to be polite).
too much talking with no action... anyway, it was interested just based on the fact it was a true story. Otherwise if it wasn`t I would of given it a 1 star rating. Anyway, 3/5.
I kept waiting for something to happen. Very very boring.
very boring.....seems interesting in the beggining but everything is so predictable and there is nothing exciting going on during the movie
My husband and I both thought this to be a top-notch thriller. The story, in real life, was convoluted at best and we both believe that despite the difficulties that must be involved in producing this kind of film, it was extremely well done. A real edge of your seat!
This was an excellent film, a real spy vs. spy psychological thriller. To the guy who complained about the ending being revealed at the beginning - read a newspaper once in a while. This is a true story, everyone already knew what happened to Hanssen in 2001, that`s not the point. Focus on the interplay between the two main characters as they endeavor to out-manipulate each other - Hanssen trying to control Eric through his wife, Eric trying to control Hanssen by exploiting his ego.
simply put "BORING" I kept dozing off. I wish I Stayed home and saved my money..
this movie is absolutely horrible!!!!! dont go see it..
Boring, I keep waiting for it to throw some twists in and it never did. But, I have to admit it was acted well.
Boy, is it fun!
4 stars. Chris Coper was great.
most boring movie EVER
It`s MEATBALLS MEETS MINORITY REPORT!
It was the best spy movie i have ever seen!! Masterpiece!!!!
This movie was very boring, it didn`t have any movement in flow, it was just a constant flow from beginning to end with no up and downs. The religious part of the movie made it especially boring
Unlike Catch me if you can, this film expressed no coy cat and mouse wit. It was terrible. Save your ten bucks.
THIS MOVIE WAS A WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME.. DON`T BOTHER.. IT SUCKS..
If a thriller has no car chases, explosions, etc, which is fine in a really good dramatic piece, then the drama should be ratcheted up a notch...unfortunately this is pretty mild with the ending given to you at the begining then going "2 months earlier", so the lack of suspense detracted from this well acted but ultimately "a little slow" movie.
The best sports movie of the year -- period.
The story was not about Hanssen but the young detective who seemed fictionalized to make a story for TV. The true story has so much more intersting things in it which never got in this account. They could have written a better script. Chris Cooper is one of the best character actors around, but this was not his role. He didn`t have the attitude of superiority that Hanssen had - his ego was just not big enough. Overall, a flawed production, poorly written and cast, and not very good editing. Of course, if the editors aren`t give good film, they can`t be expected to produce a masterpiece. This should be a MOW or direct to video/DVD.
A modern-day LOGAN`S RUN -- and just as gripping.
Accually prety good ! great thriller ! I recommend it !
