The Recruit

Saw the Recruit last night with Colin Farrell and Al Pacino. I loved it. I am such a fan of espionage films. I would love to be able to go through that training. Anyone else seen this? If not, highly recommended.

On a side note, Colin Farrell is a pimp in this. I think he is an awsome actor.

I saw it a while ago. And yes, it's a pretty good movie, though too predictable.

Dude is a pimp

its a good movie..BUT TO CLOSE if you ask me to what and how they train, although they didnt get into to many details..for as detailed as it was.

i dont think most of that info should have been in a movie...but its mostly good thinking tactics.

Ody, I would agree in some part that there was stuff that shouldnt have been in the movie but they really didnt go into any specifics of the training. All the classroom stuff was a discussion of things that the trainees already studied so I think it would be ok. Plus, I would put money on it that the CIA actaully had a big say in what the movie could use.

I kept on thinking that the last scene was all a training exercise, even until the credits. Good movie, predictable, but entertaining.

I liked the movie a lot. I thought it was entertaining. Now I kind of wonder if they do have a lot of people signing up or is it kind of a film that would promote people wanting to join?
