Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Film Review

Considering this is supposedly from a best selling novel, either the film adaptation was awful or the source book was! One of the longest feeling, most drawn out films we've seen in ages. I think the film assumed you knew who people were as it just started referencing them straight out the door, so you get a bit lost. The film jumps around quite a bit, with odd glances here and strange things happening there, and again you're not quite sure if any of it is relevant to the story. For a spy movie it's really slow, with no action at all. It gradually works its way round the top 5 to uncover a mole in the secret service. Rather it had just pointed the finger in the first 5 minutes, then we could have left!!
