Weekend DVD 1: The Recruit (2003)

Trust. Betrayal. Deception. Nothing is what it seems.

The Recruit (2003) is a spy thriller movie focusing on events transpired behind the closed door policy of the infamous Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the US, i.e. recruitment and training.

James Clayton (Colin Farrell), a smart and young computer graduate is just the person that Walter Burke (Al Pacino), a senior CIA agent wants to recruit in the Agency.

Burke's persistent interest in recruiting him causes Clayton to consider joining the CIA as a new challenge in his life. Furthermore, Burke seems to drop subtle hints that his father, Edward Clayton might be an CIA agent too before he went missing in 1990. Clayton accepts the offer and soon joins the rest of the trainees at the "Farm". He learns fast and begins to excel.

However, as soon as he falls for Layla (Bridget Moynahan), one of his fellow recruits, things begin to change
. Burke gives him a special assignment, i.e. to root out a double agent who has infiltrated the Agency. It soon becomes evident to James that he can "trust no one" and "nothing is what it seems".

Overall, this may not be among the best spy thriller movies that I've watched. The Recruit's storyline is considered bland and there's basically no intense action scenes at all. However, with Al Pacino and Colin Farrell as lead stars, I'd say that this is a decent movie with a fair amount of twist and suspense that builds up towards the end.
