Underwhelming Cold War spy story - Bridge of Spies review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
20/07/2016

The good news is that this is one of Spielberg’s adult films. The bad news is that he’s overcompensated with laboured direction. Mark Rylance’s performance as the suspected Russian spy in 1950s America is likewise woefully understated. Tom Hanks’ usual lively performance as Rylance’s attorney consequently provides a welcome breath of fresh air.

The plot holds few surprises even if you don’t know the real-life story on which it is based. It does become more interesting when the ‘action’ moves to Berlin… after a whole hour, but that’s too late to pick up much dramatic momentum. Adding to the underwhelming package is Thomas Newman’s irritating score, which visits every cliché from military trumpets to plinky-plonk piano. You can imagine the kind of scenes to which such snippets add unneeded emphasis.

Described as a dramatic thriller, the film is rarely dramatic and never thrilling. The best Cold War thriller remains Martin Ritt’s The Spy Who Came In From The Cold. If you haven’t seen that, do so.
