Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tries to Fit Too Much Into 2 Hour Movie A Cold War Spy Thriller is a movie that just screams of something I would love. The fact Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy and Mark Strong are in it just ass to a list of ingredients to a movie I had to see. The movie has a simple premise, former Circus agent played by Gary Oldman is brought out of retirement/exile to find a mole at the top of the circus. The problem is, in trying to be complex and interesting, they also lose the audience. Unless you have read the book before hand, you will have a hard time keeping up with everything going on in the movie. Many times I found myself questioning which character had which name and who was talking about who. Also in trying to fit a massive book into a short movie, they fail at explaining many things. Some instances character randomly do something without any explanation of how they started doing it. The impressive thing for me though, is even though I had many questions, I will still impressed after the movie was over. many holes get tied up at the end, and leave me very much in awe. Gary Oldman received his first ever Oscar Nomination for this. For me, I did not like the performance. I get the character was suppose to be reserved and methodical, but there were many instances where the character stayed quiet at awkward points and just stood there. Also when he did speak, I found him to be stumbling his words. I am a big Oldman fan, but this is not a performance I particularly like from him. On the other hand Tom Hardy, Mark Strong and Benedict Cumberbatch were all very impressive in there roles. Colin Firth I found rather mediocre at the beginning, but at the end of the movie he has one scene that he is exceptional in. Overall, a movie that intrigued me, but in trying to be too complex, loses its audience.
