The Russia House
Rating D - Sadly a great cast could not liven up this snoozefest!!!!! There's no tension and you never feel that anyone is in real danger. Not on of Connery's finest hours!! DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
The Russia House DVD
Sean Connery is one on my favourite actors. I am changing all my video collection to DVD so that they will last longer.
A great adaptation of leCarre's Classic
Connery is well cast as Barley Blair, and is well matched by Pfeiffer as the Russian Katya, both caught up in events and games not of their making. There are some very good supporting roles and the whole film is brilliantly shot in a enticing Russia. The story is more or less faithful to the book, but is let down, perhaps, by the decision to alter the ending to please Hollywood. I love the book, and this film is a great favourite. I think that this is Pfeiffer's best film role, and Connery is outstanding as always. Enjoy the film, but then read the book!
Bad Sean and Michelle
I found this movie strange and a bit hard to understand, no tension in it. Storyline is good, but could have been done so much more with it. Viking
