Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy: But One Has To Wonder Why

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy tells the tale of retired Deputy Head of MI6, George Smiley (Gary Oldman), who is forced from semi-retirement to uncover a Soviet spy within the intelligence service. This movie was then filmed in the most somber manner yet achieved by a film director, with more colour found on the pages of the original John le Carré book than the whole of this torturous 127 minute long snore-fest.

Within a few moments of its opening you knew this movie was going to be a knock-out. Quite literally knock you unconscious with the sheer level of its dull, banal, tedium.The dull and boring sets were only matched by the drab and colourless acting which sometimes managed to achieve high ponce before subsiding back into a miasma of bleak despair. Add in numerous painfully random scenes which skip from place to place without rhyme or reason and you soon have all the ingredients required for one of the most mind-numbingly dreary movie going experiences ever.

VERDICT

Like watching paint dry

Bill Marlow is just some crazy dude whose mad about movies and started reviewing films after witnessing one too many atrocities at the cinema. He is also very fond of talking about himself in the third person.
