'The Operative' follows the story of Rachel (Diane Kruger), a rogue spy from Israel's feared national intelligence force Mossad, who vanishes without a trace while attending her father's funeral in London. The only clue to her whereabouts is a cryptic phone call she places to her former handler Thomas (Martin Freeman), who is then summoned from Germany to Israel by Mossad. With Rachel's life immersed in her assignments as part of a vast espionage effort against Iran's nuclear program, Thomas must retrace her steps to determine what threats she may now pose to their operation, while also working to protect her.
NOT SURE IF I WAS THE AUDIENCE IT WAS INTENDED FOR
- The Operative review by AA
Strange film about a MOSSAD agent who somehow becomes a rogue in the eyes of the organisation and the attempts to bring her back under control! Long winded for my taste and the story line for me was getting thinner as the film progressed. Credit to the actors for keeping one interested by their performances but the structure of the film was not strong enough to grip my whole attention!
