One review

  • “The Good Shepherd” had wonderful actors (Alec Baldwin, Angelina Jolie, Matt Damon and Robert De Niro) and technically, it was nice. Unfortunately, that was enough to deliver a good film. The plot was so painfully slow and the excitement level was just dreadful. I thought the movie could have been a little more alive. There was not much action and you would expect action from the trailer. It is a very dull movie there wasn’t anything very interesting about it. The story is much hard to understand. There are many flash backs and date changes that it gets very hard to pay attention to what it happening. I don’t want to sound rude but it was a waste of money and time. If you are eager to see the movie I suggest you don’t but that is just my opinion.
