New CIA recruit James Clayton (Farrell) is a top prospect and his intelligence and unconventional attitude attract the attention of veteran CIA agent Walter Burke (Pacino). The veteran takes Clayton under his wing, teaching him the ropes and the rules of the game. Soon, he gives the rookie a special assignment -- to root out a mole within their ranks. But Clayton soon realizes that he can trust no one and that nothing is as it seems.
Canadian Connection: Partly filmed in Toronto, Ontario.
Like any Colin Farrell film, I just love it. It`s him, not the film itself. It`s a pretty good Colin Farrell film, but not one of Al Pacino`s best. A lot like Harrison Ford or Nicolas Cage, Al Pacino just does movies just to do them.
I love this movie...I LOVE U COLIN
