Movie Info

In 1880s London, pornographic bookseller Verloc (Bob Hoskins) is a double agent for the Russian government, providing information to Chief Inspector Heat (Jim Broadbent) about a lazy anarchist organization. In order for the anarchists to be arrested, an act of terrorism must occur. So Verloc decides to set up bombs -- which leads to tragedy -- not only for himself but also for his family, including wife Winnie (Patricia Arquette) and brother-in-law, Stevie (Christian Bale).

Audience Reviews for Joseph Conrad's 'The Secret Agent'

  • Aug 01, 2008
    Let's review: Christian Bale plays a retard who gets blown up by a bomb, Bob Hoskins gets knifed in the chest, Eddie Izzard has the worst Russian accent of all time, Robin Williams is uncredited and plays a terrorist, and Patricia Arquette plays a brittish woman making her terrible teeth acceptable. What's the point of all this? Nobody knows. A bunch of stuff happens and then the movie ends, but it wasn't un-enjoyable.
