Audience Reviews for The Tailor of Panama

  • Jul 25, 2016
    Sometimes messy and a bit too implausible to be taken serious, this is not one of the best John le Carré adaptations, but still it has some good performances (Rush, Brosnan and Curtis) in an average spy story that most of the time manages to be pretty entertaining.

    I haven't read a John le Carre nor do I need to in order to know how boring they are. "The Tailor of Panama" is as talkative as last year's "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy", but has a much quicker pace and more in terms of action. Pierce Brosnan and Geoffrey Rush play well off of each other, and overall, it's an entertaining film. Plus, the cinematography is marvelous.

    The story of a man who tells a lie that grows and grows, and it's perfectly okay. Rush is the star while Brosnan plays a secret agent who sleeps around (insert your own joke). The pacing is great so it moves along nicely, but it's so flawlessly average that you'll have forgotten it the next day.

    An intriguing tale of espionage and coercion in Central America. *<i>Geoffrey Rush never ceases to amaze me and his performance here is no exception</i>.
