'The Recruit'
(Colin Farrell, Al Pacino / PG-13 / 97 mins / Touchstone)

Overview: Colin Farrell stars as a young CIA operative in training with another young agent, played by Bridget Moynahan. Their mentor (Al Pacino) advises them that nothing is as it seems, and he's right: When Farrell's agent is told that Moynahan's character is a mole, he has to decide whether she's double-crossing him or whether it's his boss who is playing mind games.

Verdict: ’The Recruit’ - in all its gory – is really just the kind of movie you can sit back and enjoy, as long as you don't make the mistake of thinking too much! Glossy and well-massaged, for more than an hour ’The Recruit’ is slickly entertaining escapism and yet everything is what it seems and everything is by-the-book. So, entertaining for sure, but Farrell's wild-eyed intensity only manages to cover, for a good long time to be fair though, the fact that the film's plot is going absolutely nowhere !
