Bridge of Spies is available on Blu-ray today and I must say that this movie is now one of my favorites. First of all, how can you go wrong with not only Steven Spielberg, but also Tom Hanks? Both are phenomenal and so is this movie.
As the story goes, it's during the Cold War and the Soviet Union captures a United States pilot after shooting down his spy plane. He's then sentenced to ten years in a Soviet prison with the only hope being New York lawyer, James Donovan (Tom Hanks). James Donovan is recruitede by the CIA to go to Berlin to negotiate his release through a prisoner exchange ~ the pilot, Francis Gary Powers for Rudolf Abel, a convicted Soviet spy who Donovan defended in court. Not all goes as planned and although the CIA has a specific idea of how things should be played out, James Donovan has a completely different outlook.
Bridge of Spies will have you glued to the television with suspense and drama. This was one of the best movies I've seen in awhile and am so happy to have it in my movie collection.
