We went to see "The Good Shepherd," A very very long film, almost three hours.
In "The Good Shepherd," Edward Wilson, played by Matt Damon, believes in his country above everything else, and joins the newly founded CIA after the World War II ends. He trusts no one and makes huge sacrifice, including his family life.
While sometimes the film's characters are interesting, but it's really a not that much happening boring film. It could have been a great spy film with all the twisted and surprising plots. But the film is just not very engaging. Matt Damon can be a pretty darn good agent if he goes out in the fields running around as in "The Bourne Identity." However, if he sits in a office wearing the big glasses giving orders and being a father, he puts me in sleep.
My rating: 5 out of 10.
