Film review: A Most Wanted Man

An antidote to far-fetched spy fare like the James Bond and Jason Bourne sagas, this gritty, downbeat espionage drama is shot through with realism - from Hoffman's grizzled, world-weary appearance to the film's dour tone The 'most wanted man' of the title is Issa Karpov - a half-Russian, half-Chechen suspected jihadist in Hamburg illegally to claim his father's ill-gotten fortune and a better life. But this is post-9/11 Germany and the country is on high alert.

Why Tom Hardy Will Probably Never Make Another Romantic Comedy Again

Tom Hardy is best known for his serious work, be it turning up the drama in features like Warrior and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or just turning into a full-blown monster, as seen in movies like Bronson and The Dark Knight Rises . That said, two years ago he decided to branch out with a bit of lighter fare and tried doing a romantic comedy.

They Saw it Coming -- When Writers are Right

I like to divide prophets and futurists into two groups. The first is those who are simply mad and without conscious thoughts report what they perceive and interpret about worlds seen and unseen, usually with a hearty dash of paranoia or megalomania.

'The Drop': A masterpiece of tension

Getting close to two decades ago, Alec Baldwin starred in an adaptation of "Heaven's Prisoners," second in James Lee Burke's atmosphere-laden series of Dave Robicheaux novels. The film is just this side of brilliant, with director Phil Joanou and scripters Harley Peyton and Scott Frank unerringly catching the rhythm and cadence of Burke's prose, while Baldwin delivers what remains one of his best-ever performances as the recovering alcoholic, ex-New Orleans cop struggling to endure as he gets pulled into a particularly seamy investigation.

'The Drop' review: James Gandolfini and Tom Hardy sizzle in Brooklyn crime drama

James Gandolfini's final performance is reason enough to see "The Drop," a crime thriller written by Dennis Lehane and set in Brooklyn, not Lehane's usual gritty backstreets of Boston. Gandolfini is vulnerable and haunted as Cousin Marv, a bar owner in too deep with Chechen mobsters, a role that recalls his glory on "The Sopranos" without mimicking it.

DOGS! What's better than dogs? Nothing! Dogs are the greatest creatures that have ever existed or will ever exist on this planet. All movies should feature dogs - or, barring multiple dogs, at least one dog, provided that dog is suitably great.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011) Review

In the bleak days of the Cold War, espionage veteran George Smiley is forced from semi-retirement to uncover a Soviet agent within MI6's echelons. Two of the most striking aspects of Thomas Alfredson's comma-deficient Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy are the splendid cast - of which more later - and the frantic pace of the thing.

Review and trailer: A Most Wanted Man (15) - Hoffman bows out in a stylish spy thriller

This is his final leading role and when he walks out of frame in the film's touching final shot it feels like it is the actor, not the character, who is leaving the stage. He is magnificent here as a dishevelled German spy tasked with capturing Islamist terrorists in a very gloomy Hamburg.

Review: The November Man

It was in 2002 that the spy trade became a young man's game. While Pierce Brosnan was making his final appearance as James Bond in the roundly, soundly ridiculed Die Another Day , Vin Diesel came roaring to the front with xXx and Matt Damon did even better by kicking off the successful Jason Bourne franchise with The Bourne Identity .
