Review No matter how compelling and intriguing a real-life story may be, it doesn't necessarily translate into an equally compelling and intriguing motion picture. Breach is a case in point. Based on the widely publicized case of turncoat FBI agent Robert Hanssen, which dominated headlines in late February 2001, the movie succeeds at being a thriller with few thrills. With an end that is predetermined (and revealed to anyone who might be in the dark in the opening scene, a news clip of John Ashcroft announcing Hanssen's arrest), there's little room for suspense. Billy Ray's chronicling of Hanssen's capture has its high points, but it's a little on the dry side. Thank god for Chris Cooper...Breach is competently made but, aside from Cooper's performance, there's nothing here worth getting excited about.

Review What possessed Robert Hanssen, a respected FBI agent, professed family man, and fanatical Roman Catholic, to sell state secrets to the Soviets and Russians for 15 years? Was it just the money? Was it festering resentment of FBI colleagues? Or was he driven by something deeper, more unknowable? As Breach, the sharply drawn and rigorously accurate film based on the Hanssen espionage scandal makes so abundantly clear, there is no easy explanation for the man's treasonous acts, which constitute "possibly the worst intelligence disaster in U.S. history," according to a 2002 U.S. Department of Justice study. Written and directed with crisp authority by Billy Ray (the criminally overlooked Shattered Glass), Breach is a tautly entertaining, fact-based spy thriller galvanized by Chris Cooper's fascinating, multi-layered performance as Hanssen, the proverbial riddle wrapped in an enigma.

David Ansen, NewsWeek A wonderfully taut cat-and-mouse thriller.
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times ...a crackling tale of real-life espionage that doubles as a compelling psychological drama.
Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun ...isn't just a solid thriller; it's also an ambitious and engrossing piece of narrative journalism.
Stephen Hunter, Washington Post The acting is superb, particularly from the three principals.
Ty Burr, Boston Globe A compelling and eerily effective little drama.
