Katee Sackhoff talks about what it's like to be a part of "Star Wars: Rebels" and reveals the inspiration for her character on "The Flash." Plus, we get our Jedi on and learn how to wield a lightsaber.
CIA operative Nathan Muir (Redford) is on the brink of retirement when he finds out that his protege Tom Bishop (Pitt) has been arrested in China for espionage. No stranger to the machinations of the CIA's top echelon, Muir hones all his skills and irreverent manner in order to find a way to free Bishop. As he embarks on his mission to free Bishop, Muir recalls how he recruited and trained the young rookie, at that time a sergeant in Vietnam, their turbulent times together as operatives and the woman who threatened their friendship.

Tony Scott was worried that viewers would lose sight of Bishop's plight if they didn't see him. So he used the same torture footage three times to keep Brad Pitt's face in the movie. See more »
In the beginning of the movie Muir is traveling eastbound over the TR bridge into Washington D.C. If he were going to Langley he would be traveling west bound on I-66 and onto the GW parkway coming from Maryland. See more »
In the opening credits, many of the credits are each preceded by a jumble of letters flickering on the screen. This may be a reference to the opening credit sequence of one of Robert Redford's earlier spy movies, Sneakers (1992). See more »
Fast Action, Great Scenery, Excellent Acting - Dramatic Ending
This movie starts from a dead stop to 90 mph in the first two minutes. The pace does not let up. Less High-Tech and more believable than MI-2; Intrique, Plot, Sub-plots and great acting from an ole side kick of Butch Cassidy (Robert Redford). Better than "Last Castle", Brad Pitt does a remarkable job of delivering the emotion of the challenging role.
Striking scenery, high intrique, workings of Langley (CIA)with all of the inside back biting and jockeying. Seat of your chair finale, great ending. Hits a bit close to home with Special Forces friends in Asian theater of operations at this time. A well spent rainy day adventure. T. Scott does a consistantly moving job of direction.
