BREACH – Based on a true story

I watched this movie last night once I got home… I really like spy and secret agent movies… Especially one’s where the storyline is really good… This movie definately kept my attention even at 12 AM last night… 

PLOT: In February, 2001, Robert Hanssen, a senior agent with 25 years in the FBI, is arrested for spying. Jump back two months: Eric O’Neill, a computer specialist who wants to be made an agent is assigned to clerk for Hanssen and to write down everything Hanssen does. O’Neill’s told it’s an investigation of Hanssen’s sexual habits. Within weeks, the crusty Hanssen, a devout Catholic, has warmed to O’Neill, who grows to respect Hanssen. O’Neill’s wife resents Hanssen’s intrusiveness; the personal and professional stakes get higher. How they catch Hanssen and why he spies become the film’s story. Can O’Neill help catch red-handed “the worst spy in history” and hold onto his personal life?

I thought this movie was really good… However it did make me wonder a bunch of things like what else did this person really compromise? Do we even really know how much was compromised? Are there others that worked with him that are still active?

Also how much of this movie really stayed true to the true life story?

I give this movie 4 out of 5 stars because this true life story made a great movie…

I hope the U.S. Government has learned its lesson since this incident… We can’t afford to have moles inside our agencies…
