Spy vs Spy for real - The Courier (2020) - Review

The Courier tells the "true story of the British businessman who helped MI6 penetrate the Soviet nuclear program during the Cold War. Wynne and his Russian source, Oleg Penkovsky (codenamed Ironbark), provided crucial intelligence that ended the Cuban Missile Crisis.

In this political drama, there are some high-stakes chess being played on an international spy level. I really enjoyed this movie. What made it so compelling was the fact that it's based on actual events. The fortitude that some people have to stand up for what is right is truly humbling when you think of what the world is now. People are so easily deterred and lack the strength and conviction shown in this movie. If you like historical dramas add this one to your list.

Ranking 7.5/10
