  • Shepherd wants to say something profound about the effect of a deceitful government on human values. But it's tough to slog through a movie that has no pulse. show more

  • A cool-headed thriller, and a richly detailed character study that traces the birth and evolution of America's foreign espionage bureaucracy, The Good Shepherd also marks a significantly more mature, assured directing turn from Robert De Niro. show more

  • While a bit unwieldy at nearly three hours and at times slow going, the film is absolutely fascinating for anyone who shares De Niro's passions. show more

    Matt Damon and I will be agreeable that visual performances are dynamically changing. This film was a climatic experience because unlike its previously spy thriller thematics; it had a criminology.
