Bridge of Spies Review

I'm still catching up on movies that are on my list to be watched.  Bridge of Spies made it's way to the top so I gave it a shot.

It's a cold war drama that actually turned out to be pretty good.  It's a Spielberg movie starring Tom Hanks, so you basically know what you're getting in for before you even start.  But it's a cool period piece that looks at the early days of the Cold War.

It starts as a courtroom drama but turns into a movie about negotiation between world powers during the Cold War.  I feel like I learned more about the time and place thanks to this movie.  It was entertaining enough and held my attention throughout.

I can recommend it as a movie you should probably see once if the premise sounds interesting to you.  But it's not going to be one I come back to over and over again.
