Audience Reviews for The Russia House

  • Jul 24, 2016
    The plot is an interesting combination of espionage and romance, and it benefits from a great score and some beautiful locations, but it is just too bad that it is made into such an extremely dull affair in which the romance seems forced and the espionage is tedious to death.

    Although I liked Connery and Pfeiffer's acting, I found that actually understanding the significance of the notebooks and what happens with them was difficult. I had to watch it more than once to understand it.

    As one of the last cold war thrillers to actually be made during that era its a fitting finale, pointing out the nonsense of the whole affair and placing individual people and relationships in higher importance than patriotism (I'd expect nothing less from a John le Carre' adaptation). Connery and Pfeiffer are fantastic.

    Acceptable thriller with perpetually old Sean Connery proposing mature love to Michelle Pfeiffer. Perhaps no chemistry is needed..for there is none. This type of film has been made better before..and since.
