4.0 out of 5 stars Sex, Lies and Saville Row. May 13 2004
Format:DVD
If before the release of John Boorman's adaptation of John le Carre's "Tailor of Panama" (scripted by the novel's author himself) anybody had told me I'd ever see Geoffrey Rush and Pierce Brosnan costarring in the same movie, I'd have snapped "And pigs fly" in response. Apparently I wasn't alone in that feeling, as Mr. Rush himself said much the same thing - although more politely - in an interview broadcast around the time the movie hit the theaters.
Yet, on second thought, who'd have been more appropriate to play James Bond's evil twin than the latest incarnation of Bond himself? Who more appropriate to play the story's multifarious title character than the actor who shone in complex roles like David Helfgott, the Marquis de Sade and Shakespearean theater owner Philip Henslowe?
Going in, I didn't doubt that Geoffrey Rush would be an amazing Harry Pendel - the role of the seemingly pathetic antihero, the little man desperately trying to maintain his dignity in the face of overwhelming odds fits him like a glove; and he does indeed give a bravura, almost Chaplinesque performance. The greater surprise for me was Pierce Brosnan, who takes every single Bond cliche and merrily runs with it in the opposite direction: I confess this took some getting used to, but once I'd gotten into the swing of it, I enormously enjoyed his skill and courage in deconstructing the very image on which his fame is grounded.
Brosnan is Andy Osnard, an MI6 agent sent to Panama as a punishment for having stepped on one toe to many during his last posting.

2.0 out of 5 stars a waste of film Dec 24 2003
Format:DVD
ok, first of all i'm panamenian so when we got the news that they were making a movie in our country we were excited!! you know mr. brosnan, geoffrey rush, jaime lee curtis even the kid from harry potter among others, it was awesome, great actors so the hype was visible, we could not wait 'till opening night, cause we are not used to have such talent in our small country at once, and we also had a few local actors in the movie as well so it was fun, but when the movie started, basically it was a little weird, what a waste of talent i mean brosnan character turns out to be a wise guy who's only interested in two things money and sex, nothing compared to his roll as mr. bond. rush's performance wasn't bad but it could have been way better as for the other players, well i'll say a regular outcoming. Another thing that bothered me is WHY everytime somebody makes a movie in another country other than USA always shows the "poor side" or the b side of that particular place, hey i know my country has its highs and lows but for some reason they always showed the low ones, we are more than just a little village or in this movie's case a lost city!!. but anyway the movie could have been way better than it did, the only fun thing about it is that you actually see the buildings and landscape that we are used to.

Pierce Brosnan and Geoffrey Rush are already a good combo but Jaime Lee Curtis is the icing on the cake
Was this review helpful to you?
By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Geoffrey Rush is excellent as Harry, an Englishman with a sadly shady past who has re- invented himself in Panama as the best tailor in
the country, making clothes for the rich and politically powerful. Into his world comes Osnard, played by Pierce Brosnan. A morally
corrupt, self-serving MI6 spy, sent to Panama as a last chance after seducing a European diplomat's wife.

Many were bowled over by the irony of casting Brosnan, so associated with James Bond, as this much realer, creepier Bond alter ego. A
man who is handsome, and self-confident, but whose endless seduction of women seems smarmy not sexy, and who delights in
screwing other people while profiting himself.

For me the casting was actually problematic. Brosnon's terrific, but the irony is so distractingly obvious, that it pulled me out of the
story, and made me think too much about film and our hero images instead of simply accepting the character. Beyond that, Osnard
is drawn a little too broadly for my taste. He's so transparent, I have a hard time he gets anyone to trust him even for a moment.
If his inner self-serving pig were a bit better hidden, it might have given the audience more to unravel, and make other characters'
willingness to do his bidding a bit easier to buy.

The mix of tones also was a bit of a misfire for me. Never quite darkly funny enough to ascend into true satire, but certainly never
edgy enough to be taken seriously, there's a lack of danger here. Unlike 'Dr. Strangelove', we never really think Harry and Osnard's
games will reduce Panama to a pile of rubble, and the intimation of it seems false and a bit silly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the story LeCarre wrote May 26 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie presents a different story altogether than the one LeCarre wrote. The plot line of Harry and Marta was not the unspoken love story of the book, and the ending in no way resembled LeCarre's tale. The verbally explosive scene at the tailor shop makes Harry the one who gets upset, rather than Mickey (via Harry's humiliation of him), giving Mickey's suicide a different motivation entirely. The episode where Harry moves Mickey's body and cleans up Mickey's apartment is left out. Louisa is given an alternate personality more suitable to Jamie Lee Curtis. Don't waste your time and money--read the book. Better yet, listen to The John LeCarre Collection audio. Let LeCarre tell the story himself--he does so wonderfully.

4.0 out of 5 stars A spy flick with a different angle and a streak of humor.
This movie is the opposite of the Bond movies. This is not a showcase of the smooth or sophisticated. Most of the characters are seedy. Read more

As a great fan of Le Carré I was very disappointed with the ending of this movie. I had hoped that the alternative ending was better, but it wasn't. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Missed potential
This uneven story can't be saved for me by the fact that I am a Big Brosnan fan. It is only a FAIR - 2.5 STAR movie, rounded up because I am a Brosnan fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brosnan steals the show
This is an excellent version of LeCarre's novel about spying in Panama. I have always enjoyed watching Brosnan as James Bond, and I suspect he enjoyed this role even more than 007. Read more
