Ritter der Dämonen: Directed by Ernest R. Dickerson. With John Kassir, Billy Zane, William Sadler, Jada Pinkett Smith. A man on the run is hunted by a demon known as the Collector.

“u0026quot;Breachu0026quot; of Billy Ray is based on a true story about Robert Hanssen (Chris Cooper). Hanssen works for 25 years in FBI but he becomes suspicious so head of the FBI sends young Erika Ou0026#39;Neilla (Ryan Phillippe) to supervise Hanssen. Erik is hired as Hanssenu0026#39;s secretary and he must earn his confidence and actually become his friend.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRayu0026#39;s first movie (u0026quot;Shattered Glassu0026quot;) is also based on a true story just like this one. Here Ray takes maybe too big bite for him. Experienced director would make this movie even better cause here we are only given scraps. The whole betrayal of Hanssen should have been presented in much bigger way. But even without that u0026quot;Breachu0026quot; is recommendable movie with great Chris Cooper in main role and with solid support from Ryan Phillippe and Laura Linney. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAlso it reminds of magnificent u0026quot;Donnie Brascou0026quot;. Both Depp and Phillippe characters must become friends with the man they trail and actually enter in their world; so their wives suffer who donu0026#39;t know nothing about that (Heche/Dhavernas). Of course u0026quot;Donnie Brascou0026quot; is much, much better movie but I felt those connections. There is inevitable initiation of Russians again and at the whole end director makes weird. He shows Hanssen as religious man and one of the last lines when they meet in the elevator (what are the chances?) is: u0026quot;Pray for me.u0026quot; After Hanssen asks that in tears, Eric replies: u0026quot;I will.u0026quot; That last lines surely never happened in real life but they needed a movie ending and I think most of people will feel a bit sorry for Hanssen. Actually his biggest crime isnu0026#39;t that he betrayed his country (like most of people think); his biggest crime is that people were murdered because of his acts. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf you can, watch this movie to learn something about so called u0026#39;one of the greatest security breaches in U.S. historyu0026#39;, or because of Chris Cooper or just because youu0026#39;ve got nothing better to do on Tuesday evening.”
