Movie Trailer & Review : Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Just as Sherlock Holmes, the movie is lifted from the 1974 novel of the same name by John Lee Carre. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy starring Gary Oldman as George Smiley, a veteran British spy, in the bleak times of the cold war. Smiley who was in a period of semi retirement is forced to find a Soviet agent who infiltrated the organization M16.

Want to know the storyline of this thriller genre film, please watch the movie in theaters or buy the original DVD, on the link below.

Return I remind you, do not change your self-esteem by buying pirated DVDs, or download pirated movies, because people will appreciate your work, if you also appreciate their work.


This is a movie that is essentially a time warp. We are warped back into the seventies, when film was more grainy, the camera was actually steady, actors had substance, movies actually had a story to tell, and the audience was patient and intelligent.

By the standards of contemporary movie-making, when the first five minutes is usually an appetizer action sequence with a lot of explosions, this novel takes a really long time to get started, and the conflict slowly unfolds. Gary Oldman does an excellent job of playing the understated George Smiley, who must uncover a Russian mole within the leadership circle of British intelligence while battling old age/insignificance and the loss of the love of his life. George Smiley is the unlikeliest of all action heroes, and this spy thriller the opposite of James Bond. It doesn't have the epic scale and consequence of "The Good Shepherd," which was a great spy thriller in its own right. But "Tinker, Tailor" does work, and is a rare breed of film: a movie that stays loyal to the book while transforming onto the big screen.

What ultimately makes it work is the director's steady hand, his willingness and courage to test the audience's patience as he slowly builds up the plot, just as George Smiley patiently built his strategy to track down the Russian mole.
