Movie Info

Chris O'Donnell, Michael Keaton, and Alfred Molina star in this television mini-series event adapted from the book by Robert Littell and brought to the screen by cinematographer-turned-director Mikael Salomon (Salem's Lot and Benedict Arnold: A Question of Honor). An epic thriller that traces the timeline of the CIA from the Berlin Base of the 1950s through to the Gorbachev putsch, The Company details the struggles of agents caught between double lives, that war waged against an enemy as immoral as it is elusive, and the internal battles that threatened to destroy "The Company" from the inside out.

Dark Cold War spy story OK, but not thrilling.

Audience Reviews for The Company


O'Donnell's acting is subpar compared to the commanding performance by Michael Keaton. Alfred Molina also shines in his supporting role about the beginnings of the CIA's battle with the KGB, spanning 40 years until the fall off the USSR.

A (Two DVD's!!!) long story of the CIA vs the KGB during The Cold War. Three Yale college buddies enlist into the two organizations. Their loyalties to their countries and themselves are tested and twisted as young men, well into adulthood. A very long movie that was a television series that holds onto the imagination as of whom you think is the trouble maker that is causing problems on both sides of the globe because he or she is posing as a mole in one of the organizations....gripping and worth remembering.

This 3 part series released on TNT a few years ago is told through the eyes of Jack, a new CIA operative fresh out of college. The three parts play out like one giant epic spy story which would have done just fine in theaters had TNT not bought the rights...Ridley Scott was supposed to direct but stepped aside when his version was turned down (most likely due to the dismal theatrical release of Kingdom of Heaven...Ridley's 2 pt epic became a 3 part tv series...This isn't explosion Michael Bay CIA though. The covert operations and disinformation slowly make their way through the ranks as Michael Keaton (best performance ever by him) learns of a mole in the organization. From the 50's beyond the Bay of Pigs, this is one of the greatest CIA/spy stories ever made. Alfred Molina completely encompasses his role as Jack's mentor and everyone else is truely remarkable...I watched this nonstop for the 286+ minutes but if you're not a fan of long tv sessions watch 1 part a day...part 3 is my favorite....also if you want, check out The Good Shepherd...while not nearly as exciting, Matt Damon's character in that is based on Michael Keaton's in this...oh and yes...this stuff did really happen...which makes it that much better than the typical spy fictions (Spy Game for example) that have come out recently. A++++
