Breach and The Good Shepherd

On Christmas, I went to the movie theaters and saw The Good Shepherd. I liked it, but felt that the romance with Angelina Jolie and family issues took away from it. It did a good job showing how family and relationships are affected by secretive lives, but I didn't care too much for that. I wanted more thriller, like Spy Game (which I can watch repeatedly), even though it is less realistic.

I love watching the trailers before the movies, and was absolutely ecstatic when I saw the preview for Breach, begin with "You're going to be an agent... You're being tasked to headquarters, where you'll be riding the desk of an agent named Robert Hanssen." I recently finished reading Spy Handler: Memoir of a KGB Officer - The true story of the man who recruited Robert Hanssen and Aldrich Ames. In the book, Victor Cherkashin detailed how brilliant Hanssen was and how well he managed to conduct himself as a double agent. I'm looking forward to this movie, and I hope the "Hollywood romance" is kept to a minimum.
