Great movie! In the tradition of Hitchcock you know in advance how it will turn out, but the suspense is in trying to figure out how Cooper will get caught. Cooper's quiet intensity and the cast's low-key acting throughout were perfect... But reading the posts here it appears most of today's movie fans are more entertained by reality TV! I only pray Hollywood doesn't surrender. .

What kind of Pen was Hannsen refering to in the movie when he said, "these are the greatest pens in the world, I would not use anything else

A decent movie all together .. But probably the dryest movie I've ever seen.

Just saw the best intrigue as of late; and, no bang-em-up, bloody violence as in so much of today's media. Lot's of true deception by an intelligent, but religious fanatic/sexual deviant. Cooper should be nominated for an academy award for his exceptional job of playing the part of Hanssen. Am anxious to read the book...........

USA Today
Less ambitious and more narrowly focused than the CIA saga "The Good Shepherd," Breach is a compelling, intelligent drama. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Breach is competently made but, aside from Cooper's performance, there's nothing here worth getting excited about. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
The movie is serious, intelligent, intentionally claustrophobic and awfully somber -- you remember it in black and white, though it was shot (by the masterful Tak Fujimoto) in color. But you'll remember Mr. Cooper's performance for exactly what it is, an uncompromising study in the gradual decay of a soul. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Filled with tension, deception and bravura acting, Breach is a crackling tale of real-life espionage that doubles as a compelling psychological drama. Full Review
Kirk Honeycutt
The Hollywood Reporter
In this film, everything comes down to the acting. Chris Cooper, one of our finest screen actors, gets inside the mysterious traitor. Ryan Phillippe has just the right gung-ho determination tempered with a touch of naivete as O'Neill. Meanwhile, Laura Linney nails the role of a career agent. Full Review
