Newt's movie review

It boasts an all-star cast but Connery outshines them all with his skillful indignance. The man is brilliant. Pfeiffer is alright as Katya and her accent is acceptable. The story is based upon a Le Carré novel that relies heavily on Cold War fears but it's the scenery that makes the movie. Give it a chance.
