User Reviews

Mostly one side of the story, the Cuban
22 June 2020 | by miancuSee all my reviews

The movie is rather skewed towards making the Cuban spies look like the good guys, even if this message is not clearly articulated by anyone. How can you conclude otherwise when all the Cuban spies are portrayed like just the next door neighbor, doing what the regular next door neighbor would do, very nice people otherwise, going to church, with no express sentiments whatsoever for or against the US. Critically, there was absolutely no perspective in the movie from the US side. It's like "we are here to spank a few bad boys from our neighborhood, no big deal". When in reality the anti-Castro revolutionaries were more that just tolerated in the US, so when these spies went against them you would expect that they implicitly went against some hidden US policy goals. None of this state against state struggle was apparent in the movie. in a very short segment the movie portrayed official relations more as cordial, even if distrustful. While the movie was not so bad, the skewness was too far off.
