IGN | 'Bridge of Spies' Review


While Bridge of Spies may take place decades ago, during the height of the Cold War, the message Spielberg is offering about today is quite clear. He warns us that we are trading our principles for perceived security, that we are regularly happy to give up our ideals. It is a powerful rebuke, one that is more powerful than the film from which it emanates. Hanks and the cast are enjoyable, but having two separate stories prevents satisfactory depth on either one.

The story is too old to be commented.
