In 2001, FBI trainee Eric O’Neill (Ryan Phillippe) starts work under the Bureau’s computer wizard Robert Hanssen (Chris Cooper), with secret orders to check on his internet habits. He’s soon told Hanssen is the target of an espionage investigation.
Cold and cerebral, with simmering suspense rather than outright excitement, this is a feel-the-quality-of-the-acting movie. It can’t answer all sorts of questions, but does take a scary mug shot of a subtle monster.
