ReviewSource Variety
Review The challenge of condensing Robert Littell's nearly-900-page novel, combined with some unfortunate casting choices, ultimately defeats "The Company" -- a handsome six-hour limited series that meticulously pores over the same spy-counterspy Cold War stones as recent feature "The Good Shepherd." A historical fiction spanning 40 years, the narrative lurches through the first two hours, incorporates more action (without adding much enlightenment) in the second chapter and finally races to knot its loose ends in the finale...There's no nice way to state the obvious -- that despite the creative stamp of producers Ridley Scott, Tony Scott and John Calley, stars Chris O'Donnell, Alfred Molina and Michael Keaton simply don't work in their roles, obscuring the solid supporting work, especially by Tom Hollander..."The Company" does cast light on the ambiguity of espionage and the uncertainty of war when waged in the shadows. It is also, ultimately, a rather reassuring message for our present times, inasmuch as the "good guys," for all their failings, somehow manage to emerge victorious.
