The Recruit

The Recruit [2003]

Director: Roger Donaldson
Actor: Al PacinoColin Farrell

This is a nice little film in which Colin Farrell plays a rather angsty, but likable guy who, with his extra-ordinairy wit and ingenuity gets recruited to come and work for the CIA. Being as good as he is he gets involved in a nasty piece of business under the tutelage of his recruiting officer, played by Al Pacino.

A rather predictable film, and not exactly either lead actor’s best, but enjoyable. Eva remarked that she thought that Al Pacino was all out of “Whoohaa!” and this film certainly seems to prove that, though I am not ready to give up on him yet.
