In an era when the country's first line of defense, intelligence, is more important than ever, this story opens the CIA's infamous closed doors and gives an insider's view into the Agency: how trainees are recruited, how they are prepared for the spy game, and what they learn to survive. James Clayton might not have the attitude of a typical recruit, but he is one of the smartest graduating seniors in the country - and he's just the person that Walter Burke wants in the Agency. James regards the CIA's mission as an intriguing alternative to an ordinary life, but before he becomes an Ops Officer, James has to survive the Agency's secret training ground, where green recruits are molded into seasoned veterans.

In the movie, John Medica was identified as the VP of Dell Engineering. This was correct when the movie was produced (he has since retired from Dell). But Al Pacino pronounces his name as "Me-de-ka". John pronounces his surname as "Med-uh-ka". See more »
It was just a big disappointment in my eyes. The film lacks fundamental things like introducing stuff and explaining their meaning to the film, not letting the viewer know what the heck this all is about and it keeps going like this from the middle of the film until the end. I don't see a message or a thing one could take out of the film and be happy with it. It is non-convincing when trying to make us believe things or actions usually happen (e.g. usual CIA stuff), it is pointless (not trying to show or prove a thing) and plainly stupid in its outcome (unsatisfying ending and weakest dialogs I've witnessed in a long time). Not recommended, it's a waste of time.
