The Recruit – Edited

Theatrical Release: September 11, 2003
DVD Release: September 11, 2003


Academy Award Winner Al Pacino and Colin Farrel take you deeper into the CIA than you’ve ever been before in this action-packed psychological thriller. James Clayton (Ferrell), one of the smartest graduates in the country, is just the person Walter Burke (Pacino) wants in the Agency. James quickly rises through the ranks and falls for Layla (Bridget Moynahan), one of his fellow recruits. But just when James starts to question his role and his cat-and-mouse relationship with his new mentor, Burke taps him to root out a mole. As the suspense builds in a maze of gripping twists and turns, there are only two things James can count on – he can’t trust anyone and nothing is, as it seems. It’s the ultimate CIA thriller with so many surprise plot twists; you’ll want to watch it again and again. This edited film is provided and edited by Family Flix.

Dove Review

This is indeed a thriller. The plot twists alone will make your head spin. If this is the life that CIA agents live, it is amazing that they have any agents. This makes James Bond look like kid stuff. While there is some violence and intense scenes, they are not graphic. A good job is done with the editing. There is no love scene shown and you certainly don’t miss it. I really liked this thriller. I have always like Al Pacino and I was not disappointed in his role in The Recruit. I am rapidly becoming a fan of Colin Farell too. If you like suspense and thrills then you will really like this edited version of The Recruit.
