Critic Reviews for Joseph Conrad's 'The Secret Agent'
This project is dead in the water. Read the book. Better still, read Victory.
Drab and inept version of the great 1907 novel by Joseph Conrad on terrorism.
A nostalgic sleepy and literate period piece spy drama that periodically captures your attention when least expected. Not as stimulating as one could imagine but nevertheless credible
Audience Reviews for Joseph Conrad's 'The Secret Agent'
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.
Maintains interest with story and great cast.
