Reviews

A shockingly average film

There is nothing extremely bad about The Courier, but it is a dull affair. It is formulaic, well-made yet entirely uninspiring. The director couldn't decide whether to stress emotion, politics or action and, in the end, did no favors to any particular aspect of the story.

Extremely Average

This ticked every cliche box in the generic spy movie playbook. It was nothing special, and I'll forget it by tomorrow. All the amazing reviews are either studio plants or the kind of people who thought Bridge of Spies was good (good as a cure for insomnia, sure). I felt nothing for any of them, and you knew how it would play out before the credits rolled.

They also did the real Grenville Wynne a disservice by stating he died peacefully in 1990. He died of throat cancer and suffered depression and alcoholism after being released from the Soviet Union. That would've been a more interesting story. His life after spying.

It's really just Meh

I disagree with the general IMDB crowd on this one. I thought that the acting from Benedict Cumberbatch and Rachel Brosnahan did not give the depth and seriousness that is required for this kind of grim and serious movie. Of course Rachel Brosnahan was wonderful in Mrs Maisel (If you haven't see- go see) but there she is liberated comic whereas here she has to portray a serious CIA agent and that casting just doesn't work.

In general the rest of the story about the cold war, spies, espionage, deserters etc has been told a thousand times already. I found myself not drawn to the story at all even if it has some ground truth behind it, it is just not exciting and the acting did not do enough to carry it. It does not come close to creation such as 'the Americans' which brings a new spin on the cold war and deep, complicated characters. None of it exists in this movie.

Not a bad movie overall but it is a far cry from a masterpiece. There are so many better stories out there, I would watch only if you have some sort of personal connection to this story otherwise you will be bored. Exact score: 53 / 100.
