    This was a great movie. I have no idea why it's rating isn't doing very well right now (EDIT: Oh I know why, because people are seeing it in the theatre. Well I streamed it, so it was free). Good suspense. Good characters. At one point, I was like, this is kind of like The Fugitive. I liked Robert Redford in Spy Game. Yeah he's getting old, but he still plays the cool headed protagonist well. Also the young guy was fun to watch. Expand

    Incredible cast... superbly directed with a thoughtful, provocative, suspenseful story. No action figures and no explosions but it is not just about politics it is about us... the choices we make... career choices... relationships... compromises... how you deal with the past... secrets.... aging... parenting... personal sacrifices... the importance of values but not losing sight of humanity and friendship: enduring... surprising... disappointing and across party lines... Ignore what you hear and go see it. No matter what... it will get you talking after the movie. Collapse

    Robert Redford shows he is a great director making provocative movies like this one. at it's core it is a thriller, it becomes an examination of family, loyalty, sacrifice, and the rights of the press, The company you keep is well directed by Redford. Robert Redford proves he has still got acting ability, and he assembles a great cast. This an engrossing move

    Incredibly fascinating, sensitive, old fashioned cinema! The scenes between Redford and Christie make for a movie just by themselves! I found it compelling, moving, distinguished, extraordinarily acted, scored and photographed! And bringing up thoughts that way more often should be examined by films today, instead of explosions and/or Marvel's comics! W real cinema! Both Julie Christie and Susan Sarandon should be serious Oscar's contenders! Expand

    Well-crafted, well-intentioned and well, just a tad dull.

    Redford is an adequate director, and he keeps things moving at a moderate pace, passing up exits to more spectacular vistas or hotter issues.

    Ends up being an enjoyable, if only marginally memorable, ride.
