I Met The Spy Movie Review
In this article, I’m going to give you an overview of how I Met The Spy – the actual movie. There is a lot more information on this movie from Movieguide and YahooMovie Reviews. Also, I’ve made a quick review of the trailer.
The film takes place in Poland, and stars David Strathairn, Armie Hammer, Natasha Henstridge, Dennis Quaid, and Lily Rabe. Kevin Costner is directing the movie, and he has said that he hopes the movie will encourage American soldiers to come home and use their experience as a catalyst for international security. It’s not certain how much of the message will be delivered in the film, but it seems to be working well so far. The people of Poland, it is said, will be pleased to know that their service men are more interested in reuniting with their loved ones, than in searching for Osama Bin Laden.
The movie itself doesn’t have much to say about how I Met The Spy can really help peace. It would be nice if the movies made peace seem like something that could be achieved, instead of something that just isn’t possible. In this movie, an American soldier, Tomas, goes home, meets his daughter, falls in love, and starts to look for his girlfriend. He discovers that a group of ex-spies are living in Poland, and he goes there to meet them. To my surprise, this movie doesn’t really try to help us, or offer any sort of solution, except to say, “he’ll be home in time for the movie”.
The movie is about the former US military, and what happens when our service men and women return from war. It’s not a good story, and it makes me sad that it was made into a movie. If the government is trying to use these stories, why not create new films that show us what’s really happening? I can see the reasoning behind it, but the movie doesn’t really help.
If anyone reading this cares about peace, then it would be nice if they spent less time telling us that it’s not possible, and more time showing us that it is. If everyone in this country is tired of hearing this, then maybe we should develop a new agenda, and not expect the politicians to carry it out. We deserve a better movie, and a better government.
I Met The Spy is currently available online, for free. It is rated PG-13, so it’s not a cartoon, or any other inappropriate content. This movie isn’t designed to push any type of religious message, and the actors do not even speak Polish. The movie doesn’t try to sway anyone to any point of view, and it doesn’t look like it would be any more effective than any other movie for the government to use in their efforts to make peace.
I hope the movie doesn’t promote nationalism, because that would break the bonds of trust between the governments of the countries involved and cause more problems than it solved. Instead, I’d like to see movies that show what happens after wars are over, and explain how the governments can work together to make the world a better place. I wish I had seen this movie earlier, as I really would have understood much more about what was going on. However, it looks like I’m out of luck.
I Met The Spy is currently available online, and will hopefully be in theaters by the end of the year. Enjoy!
