Sneakers

Sneakers ★★★½

Sneakers is an enjoyable, surprisingly feelgood variant on the espionage flick with a classy all-star cast. Robert Redford, Dan Aykroyd, Sidney Poitier, River Phoenix, Ben Kingsley, Mary McDonnell, David Strathairn and James Earl Jones - all in the one movie!

Phil Alden Robinson's direction could have been kicked up a notch and Kingsley's unconvincing accent is an anomaly in the otherwise solid acting. Still, the suspense bubbles along nicely (if not too intensely) throughout and the script is laced with neat bits of humour.
