So what did you guys think about this? I absolutely loved it, one of the most involving suspense movies since Minority Report... damn it was so good!!!!!!! !!

It was okay. Ending was a little too slow and cheesy. First half was good though.

It's actually called "The Recruit."

You got to wonder how good it was when you can't remember the name of the movie.

I thought it was good while they were still at "THE FARM" but after that it started going straight downhill and the ending just plain sucked. It was an average flick, nothing special about it, but Colin Ferrell rules...

First 2/3 of the movie was great but I agree, once they left the farm it just slowed to a grinding hault. Gotta love the fact that Colin Farrell looked really good. Is it me or has Al Pacino been playing the exact same character in every movie he's been in since Heat?

Bridget Moynahan has got to be the cutest actress out there. . .
Good movie, the first half was great, but it slowed towards the end, and the ending itself just didn't satisfy like it should have. Colin Farrell remains my favorite actor after this performances in The Recruit and his performance in Minority Report.

I thought it was decent and entertaining. I enjoyed the first half of the movie, but was not impressed with the second half. Pacino and Farrell made a god team though.
