Inspired by the incredible true story of the greatest security breach in U.S. intelligence history, Breach is a spellbinding thriller starring Academy Award winner Chris Cooper, Ryan Phillippe, Academy Award nominee Laura Linney and Dennis Haysbert. Eric O'Neill (Phillippe) is assigned to work with renowned operative Robert Hanssen (Cooper), the sole subject of a long-term, top-secret investigation. Determined to draw this suspected double-agent out of deep cover, O'Neill finds himself in a lethal game of spy vs. spy, where nothing is as it seems. Critics are hailing Breach as "electrifying" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) and "suspenseful" (Ty Burr, The Boston Globe).

O'Neill will have to discover the truth by becoming Hanssen's personal assistant, and by gaining his trust. He will follow him, document every single thing he does, and spy his every moves. O'Neill will be intimidated and mesmerized by Hanssen who might be seen as his mentor.
Negative comment: The make-up on everyone (particularly Chris Cooper) at times was terribly awful and badly done. Caroline Dhavernas (O'Neill's German wife, Juliana) looked old with that make-up! And she just does not have the German accent, as her English is almost perfect - she is from Quebec.
Positive comments: Well-paced. Realistic and thought-provoking. Decent script.
The acting was not bad, certainly not the actors' best performances.
Well-directed by little-known movie director Billy Ray.
BE WARNED: If you expect a car-chase or gun-packed action movie, stay away from this.
If you like spy thrillers with a hint of psychology and history, this is a recommended film.
Hanssen has been recalled to FBI headquarters, supposedly to head up a new division specializing in Information Assurance. But Hanssen is suspicious of the move and therefore doubly suspicious of O'Neill. Time and time again Hanssen tells O'Neill "I need to know if I can trust you," and the answer of course is "no." The dynamic of this film is that O'Neill starts off behind the story until he sees through the cover story that Hanssen is a sexual deviant and is brought up to speed by Burroughs. Then he has to get ahead of Hanssen. According to the commentary track by director Billy Ray ("Shattered Glass") and the real Eric O'Neill, this is the biggest change from what really happened because O'Neill was told Hanssen was under suspicion but not that the FBI already had hard evidence of espionage.Read more ›
never boring,and it was much more straight forward than i expected it
to be,making it easy to follow.this is a movie that i didn't find
overly compelling,but more than enough to maintain interest.there isn't
a lot of suspense or tension.we are shown at the beginning how the
movie will end up,but it is interesting seeing how it gets to that that
point.that's a credit to the good writing.but i think it the acting in
this one that really elevates it.Chris Cooper was terrific as usual.but
Ryan Phillippe really impressed me here.i thought he was
outstanding.Laura Linney was good as well,although i wish she had been
given a more substantial role.all things considered,this is a low key
movie.it won't blow you socks off or anything,but it works.i would
watch this movie again,as i found it interesting.for me,Breach is a

I streamed this as it sounded interesting and also had Ryan Philippe in it whom I quite like. It is based on the true story of Robert Hanssen who was caught after spying for 25... Read morePublished 14 months ago by Tommy Dooley
