Did You Know?

"In the Company of Spies" is the first and so far only movie to be approved by the CIA. The CIA cooperated in the making of the film, allowing the filmmakers to shoot at CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., and even providing 60 off-duty employees to serve as extras.See more »

enjoyable but overrated, 22 November 2000
Author: Dr.X from parts unknown

This is a nicely done action suspense film that depicts a CIA scenario involving hypothetical events in North Korea. Having read prior reviews and seeing an overall rating of 8.2 on this site before I viewed it, though, I was somewhat disappointed. There is some cool gadgetry and many good suspenseful scenes and it's certainly watchable and entertaining, and it does give some appreciation for what is at stake and the personal risks taken on by operatives. However, many of the bad guy characters and non-CIA government officials come off as self-mocking cardboard cutouts, and several of the scenes just don't hold up. Nice performances by Tom Berenger and Ron Silver and good location work. Overall, worth seeing but has some flaws.
