When Peter and his girlfriend, Gail, cross paths with the charismatic Dima on their Moroccan holiday, the forceful Russian is quick to challenge Peter to a friendly game of tennis. But this innocuous contest is not all it seems.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average While White's direction is atmospheric, the sense of tension never gets crucial; the movie's got more of a mood of resignation than of conflict. For all its respectful and respectable qualities, it also suffers from a certain inertia.
NY PostFull Review Below Average A tightly controlled British spy thriller with more brains than heart, "Our Kind of Traitor” is a dismal, low-energy affair.
Rolling StoneFull Review Good It's the cat-and-mouse game between Dima and Hector that creates the almost unbearable tension and suspense. It also reveals the humanity in two dangerous men whose survival mechanism relies on keeping their personal feelings in check.
Slant MagazineFull Review Above Average White does somewhat make up for such moments with an effective scene portraying the violence and despair of the lower depths in a Parisian banlieue, a jolt of stark realism that reveals the evil underlying the mafia's alluring exterior.
