Profile of The Good Shepherd

The mood of The Good Shepherd is gloomy, atmospheric, and rough. The plot centers around a government agency, espionage, and secret agents. It is a drama, thriller, and period movie. Stylistically, The Good Shepherd features an all-star cast and is epic. In approach, it is serious and realistic. The pacing is slow. The Good Shepherd is set in Cuba, Washington DC, and Africa. It happens in the 1950s and in the 1960s. The movie is known for being a Berlin festival winner. Note that The Good Shepherd includes profanity and violent content.

Time
Damon is terrific in the role--all-knowing, never overtly expressing a feeling. Indeed, so is everyone else in this intricate, understated but ultimately devastating account of how secrets, when they are left to fester, can become an illness,...

Washington Post
The Good Shepherd is serious adult moviemaking, a truly surprising effort from De Niro, a man deeply interested in the art, craft and psychology of espionage. He seems to believe that we'd better be interested in it, because it's interested in us.

Intriguing and well acted
I don't know what people want from De Niro - I liked this second direction of his as much as I liked his first. In light of his recent titles as an actor, I think I even prefer him that way (even in this movie he has a hard time losing his gangsta...

This movie seems to be missing something. While Angelina Jolie is an excellent actress, her character is completely superfluous to this story. There are definite areas of missing plot and development in this movie, and although it has great...

This movie is so boring even Angelina can't help it. Matt Damon is wooden and lifeless. I'm so sorry that DeNiro couldn't put together a better movie than this. He gets credit for putting together a lot of big names and faces in the cast, but we...

This movie looked cool on the commercials bt when I watched it it was bad. This is the first movie in a while that actually gave me a headache because it was long and boring.

What could have been an interesting film turned out to be an overlong very poorly edited and confusing film with an all star cast not even able to save this mess. I had mild expectations and had to rewind scenes multiple times in order to follow...

What a film! DeNiro scores big here. This isn't just about the forming of the CIA, but through that story we get insights into marriage, growing old, the passage of time and the nature of honesty. Rarely has such a specific story been able to shed...

"The Good Shepherd" has fine acting and manages to hold one's interest, but the plot is very convoluted and the main character, a "spook," is such a cypher that I don't think he speaks 25 full lines throughout the whole of this nearly three-hour...
