The East

The East ★★

This was a movie I was really looking forward to but it turned out to be a real disappointment. This movie had such promise and with a cast like this, it shouldn't of been this dull. When you have an undercover agent infiltrating an anarchist group, the movie should be filled with tension and suspense. But this movie lacks any of those elements.
A huge problem is having Brit Marling as the main star when she is the least interesting character in the movie. Her character is sent in to help bring down this group and like every other undercover film ever made, she begins to sympathize with their goals. If they had made the anarchist group the main focal point of the film, I'm sure it would of made a more interesting film.
