Movie Reviews: “Bridge of Spies,” “Our Brand is Crisis” & "Spectre"



   Bridge of Spies
   Rated PG-13




Insurance attorney James Donovan becomes the most hated man in Brooklyn when he defends an accused Russian spy during the height of the Cold War.  After the trial, Donovan is recruited by the CIA to “unofficially” negotiate a prisoner exchange involving his client and a captured American U-2 pilot.

Based on a true story, Bridge of Spies is a top-notch film-the writing, acting, and cinematography are outstanding.  With just the right amount of suspense and humor, Bridge of Spies will keep you mesmerized.






   Our Brand is Crisis
   Rated R




Political strategist “Calamity” Jane Bodine’s life is in shambles when she is hired to help a low-polling Bolivian presidential candidate.  Pitted against rival strategist Pat Candy, Jane and the team exploit other candidates’ weaknesses in order to win the election.

Dramatic, yet satirical, Our Brand is Crisis gives the viewer a glimpse into the cutthroat world of political campaigns.  With deeply flawed, unlikeable characters who do despicable things, Our Brand is Crisis is a prime example of a new genre of films and books-those without a protagonist the reader or viewer can root for.  If you’re in the mood for an atypical film, Our Brand is Crisis is the film to see.





   Spectre
   Rated PG-13





James Bond is back!  After being disciplined for an unsanctioned mission in Mexico and with the 00 program in danger of being dissolved, Bond works off-the-books and partners with a beautiful doctor to track his most dangerous nemesis.  Will he survive and find love again or will this mission be his last?

Action-filled, easy-to-follow and witty, Spectre is a fun-filled e-ticket ride.  It’s a must see for action film aficionados…
