  1. Marco Tassinari's rating of the film The Falcon and the Snowman

  2. Mtume Gant's rating of the film The Falcon and the Snowman

    The history is better than the film overall but I’ll give it credit for capturing the history at least decently. And this is one of Penn’s best early performances

  3. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Falcon and the Snowman

    Sean Penn ruined this movie. Sometimes he just goes too big. Meanwhile Mr. Hutton is doing an excellent job.

  4. LETTERBOXD.COM/XESCIE's rating of the film The Falcon and the Snowman

  5. Ghostman's rating of the film The Falcon and the Snowman

    Pretty damn great. Sean Penn is outstanding and this is probably Timothy Hutton's shining moment.

  6. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film The Falcon and the Snowman

    Director John Schlesinger's atypical fact-based Cold War espionage thriller is a solid effort, if a bit light on actual suspense. Steven Zailian's tight script is performed by an excellent cast - particularly a young Sean Penn. There are several strong moments, but overall it is underwhelming and goes on too long. The very 80s music score dates it badly.
