Robert Horton, retired from the spy game, is thrust back into it
4 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Foreign Exchange" is a solid and enjoyable spy story with plenty of twists. In spy stories, twists usually arise when the boss of the spy sends him on a mission that, unknown to the spy, has a different objective. The boss may lie to his own agent. At other times, it's a game of chess in which the boss plans on his agent's and opposition moves and then there are counter-moves already planned. In this movie, these kinds of nifty complications occur, but there is much more due to the independence of Robert Horton's spy character. He's no passive pawn. He's been out of the spy game for 5 years. He has information he's ready to use against his own boss (Sebastian Cabot) when things get hot for him. He's willing and able to cooperate to some extent with the Russian boss (played very nicely by Eric Pohlmann). Also, Horton is no slouch in transmitting pressure to other spies with questionable backgrounds, in the same way that Cabot has blackmailed him into a new mission. When Horton's interrogated, he can lie with a straight face and no loss in composure.

All of this adds up to a very good spy movie.
