Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011)

Genre: Drama, Mystery, Thriller

This is a different spy film than anything I have seen before. There is no big action scenes that usually contain explosions, fast cars and women (you know what kind). However, personally I found it refreshing that it didn’t have these standard stereotypes. This was a film that demanded your attention from start to finish. The narrative was interesting, slow build (and never really got faster) and I was captivated throughout. Captivated but to be quite honest, I wasn’t really excited. What really makes you watch this is the stellar cast and unique characters. John Hurt, Mark Strong, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch just to name a few šŸ˜› . Each character had their own back story (and character arc) which made each bring a new dynamic to the film šŸ™‚ . I also loved the attention to detail with the costumes, background setting and the sepia colouring over the entire film making it seem like the film was made in the 70’s. If you want to watch a film about spies but something slightly different than this is for you šŸ™‚ . Enjoy šŸ™‚ .

I give this film 4 stars out of 5!

Trust no one. Suspect everyone.
