The Good Shepherd Reviews

September 24, 2010
As a punishingly ambiguous and astonishingly thorough tragedy, "The Good Shepherd" shows that emotions as human as any errors can undermine intelligence and questions whether God and country alone can be enough for a man's soul.

Stylistically engaging, narratively murky, historically worthless.

You will probably come away from it impressed but unmoved.

A isappointing hybrid that's too bloated, diffuse and tedious to work as a regular length movie -- yet has not enough emotional range or narrative focus to be considered a great epic drama.

Damn near drowns itself with its unwaveringly solemn sense of importance

Seems thoroughly conflicted about whether it actually buys what it's selling.

A pesar de su extensa duración, la película no parece tener un minuto de sobra. El relato es apasionante, y está servido por un actor-director que ha aprendido mucho de sus maestros.

March 24, 2007
In a mystery worthy of the CIA, The Good Shepherd ends up being both too long and too short.
March 21, 2007
Not quite unlocking the secret history of the CIA.

The Good Shepherd tells a compelling, complex, personal and political story and tells it extremely well. It's an engrossing film.

Apropriadamente mergulhado em sombras e belíssimas imagens em contraluz, é o segundo trabalho de De Niro como diretor, que revela, aqui, um olhar inspirado para composições e, como já era de se esperar, um talento inegável para a condução do elenco.

February 26, 2007
Better than any of the feature film versions of John le Carre's novels and nearly as good as the TV mini-series based on Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and Smiley's People.
February 26, 2007
It's a film for fans of John Le Carre, rather than Ian Fleming.
February 26, 2007
Never manages to create a gripping strand to hold our attention.

Not a film everyone will like. But those who do will appreciate De Niro's insistence on accurate detail.

165 minutes of my life I will never get back, damn it. This is one shepherd that's lost control of its flock.

De Niro deserves credit for the broad, ambitious canvas he's worked on, but his movie is just as mechanical and humourless as his protagonist.

February 23, 2007
On paper this had "belter" written all over it. Sadly, Damon's lifeless performance in the lead role failed to keep me gripped throughout the movie's bum-numbing 167 minutes.

Touches are just enough to earn The Good Shepherd a third star. But De Niro might want to stick to acting in future.
