Profile of The Recruit

The mood of The Recruit is rough and suspenseful. The plot centers around a hotshot hero, basic training, and a government agency. It is a thriller and action movie. Stylistically, The Recruit involves twists and turns. In approach, it is serious and realistic. The pacing is fast. The Recruit takes place, at least partly, on a military base. The setting is Boston and Washington DC. It happens in contemporary times. The Recruit is especially suggested for a boys' night. Note that it includes violent content.

Critics Reviews

Rolling Stone
As a thriller, The Recruit is merely an entertaining ride. But remember: Nothing is what it seems. It's the subtext -- two actors from different generations faking each other out with skill and affection -- that counts.

Good but WAY to predictable. It could have been GREAT, but it relies on overused formulas from other espionage films. The extras were more enlightening than the movie itself.
