ReviewSource ReelViews
Review The Good Shepherd is Robert DeNiro's fictionalized account of the birth and early years of the CIA. While the names have been changed to protect the not-so-innocent, many of the characters have real-life counterparts. The lengthy movie (15 minutes shy of three hours) unspools like a cold war spy novel, with betrayals, double-crosses, triple-crosses, and fluid allegiances...The Good Shepherd is equally fascinating as a character drama and as a cold war thriller...The bottom line is that The Good Shepherd is engaging cinema. The length is a drawback, but not a big one since the movie earns the majority of its 165-minute running time. De Niro pulls the viewer into the world he has created and holds him there, sometimes spellbound, until the story is over and the end credits roll.

ReviewRating 9
Review Thirteen years after he made an auspicious directorial debut with the affectionately observed coming-of-age story A Bronx Tale (1993), Robert De Niro resoundingly beats the sophomore slump with The Good Shepherd, a sweeping and richly entertaining historical drama about the rise of the CIA, based in part on the real-life experiences of the organization's enigmatic founder, James J. Angleton. Handsomely crafted and impeccably acted by an all-star cast, this quietly riveting and meticulously detailed film presents a fascinating portrait of Cold War-era espionage through the experiences of Edward Wilson...Unfolding at a thoughtful, measured pace, The Good Shepherd may not hold you completely in its grip over the course of its nearly three-hour running time, but its excessive length in no way blunts the power of this intriguing and sharply drawn film.
