Storyline

The KGB was, for 50 years, an intelligence agency, using money, sex and blackmail as tools to entice foreigners to betray their countries and hand over secret information. We enter the vaults of the KGB to see the use of the "Honey Trap" -- the use of women in sexual situations to snare victims and obtain secret information. How did the KGB identify U.S. Marines who worked at the U.S. Embassy and target them, leading to compromise and in the case of marine Lonetree, to a 30 year prison sentence. We see a bumbling FBI agent selling out his country for sex in a car, and the CIA officer who lived a lavish lifestyle at the cost of agents' lives. Hidden cameras reveal seduction, passion and sexual conduct all used to destabilize enemy governments. Written by Anonymous

No New Turn Evident In The Arena Of Espionage.
1 March 2004 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews

The unique natures of espionage and counterespionage are approached in this documentary, narrated by Roger Moore, tracking ostensibly little-known activities of the former Soviet Union KGB. In spite of a rather garish title, a primary issue here is the generally successful policy of the infamous Soviet intelligence agency to determine critical character weaknesses of its enemies' agents, demonstrated through freshly obtained video tapes and other documents and by dint of simulated episodes utilizing actors. The role of sex as a weakness is touched upon, but not overplayed, with greed being shown to be at least as great a foible, as limned in the spying cases of Aldrich Ames and of the U.S. Navy's Walker family. It is correctly pointed out that each participant in the Cold War possessed full knowledge of its opponents' activities until the fall of the U.S.S.R., with the purpose of the game being to cripple an enemy's strategy through co-opting of agents. The film's makers propose that with a market-driven economy functioning within the New Russia, formerly secured documentation is now, in the light of day, for sale to highest bidders, with the piece's producers reportedly having access. The C.I.A. is depicted to have as baleful an effect upon international relations as its Soviet counterpart and, in the production's most provocative and most apocryphal section, an inquiry is formulated as to the comparative influence of the two intelligence giants upon the Vatican and its lordship over a billion acolytes. A good portion of this endeavour is about paranoia, with repeated reference made to the legendary suitcase size nuclear devices said to be secreted within the United States as well as other nations, available for the largest offering. Moore, who has played in his share of films based upon espionage themes, capably narrates, although he swallows his words upon occasion. The climactic portion is a scripted polemic against "terrorism", principally depicted in the personage of Osama Bin Laden, meantime bypassing the monolithic presence of the KGB (now FSB), as under Vladimir Putin Russian state socialism has stepped its emblematic single step backward in preparation for a subsequent advance.
