  1. Mohammad Ebrahimian's rating of the film The Russia House

  2. Thomas's rating of the film The Russia House

    Stodgy procedural spy thriller. Connery gives a strong, refreshingly 'out of type' performance, but the overall pace and narrative suffers from clunky direction.

  3. Matt Rolls's rating of the film The Russia House

    A truly great Cold War thriller.

  4. Hani's rating of the film The Russia House

    Saved by the actors. For me, best Sean Conery I have ever seen. He changed his skin completely. What a great actor.

  5. Publius's rating of the film The Russia House

    Despite this being an incredibly average plot, it's well acted, beautifully photographed, and I absolutely adore its 'fuck your political east/west bullshit, I'm not working for either of you and I'm running away with the woman I love' denoument.

  6. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film The Russia House

    Handsome but incredibly tepid adaptation of John LeCarre's espionage tale boasts an impressive cast, an elegant Jerry Goldsmith score, and absolutely beautiful location photography of Moscow. But director Fred Schepisi and Tom Stoppard's convoluted script fail to generate even an ounce of suspense or tension. A stately, visually impressive dud.
