Fast paced action with Berenger's usual charming military style
30 November 1999 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

In the Company of Spies is a fast paced film that starts off with action as a CIA agent is picked up by Korean officials for questioning. While he is held, and not treated kindly, we watch on the other side of the world as tried and true actor Tom Berenger's character is brought from retirement by his former associate, played by Ron Silver. Tim Matheson did a great job directing this one. Most impressive in this film is Clancy Brown, who portrayed the very much distressed English gentleman under possible deadly pressure. As one who associates Clancy with Kurgan in the first Highlander movie (and sadly relieved Sean Connery of his head), I was pleasantly surprised at the depth and power of his character in this movie. Here's hoping to see this cast back for more!
