4.0 out of 5 stars What ever you do, don't put out The Madonna's Holy light.
Loosely based on the real Mata Hari (WWI spy), this is a tail of a spy that may have got caught up in something greater than God and Country.

Mata (Greta Garbo), a German spy, has been pumping Russian General (a not very convincing Lionel Barrymore) for some time for Russian intel. When by chance she comes across a young enthusiastic Russian flight lieutenant...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Really Impressed
I think that more could have been done with the film considering that Mata Hari had a glamourous and dangerous career. It didn't leave me on the edge of my seat or teach me anything about Mata Hari. Still, it is worth a watch when you have nothing better to do.

Loosely based on the real Mata Hari (WWI spy), this is a tail of a spy that may have got caught up in something greater than God and Country.

Mata (Greta Garbo), a German spy, has been pumping Russian General (a not very convincing Lionel Barrymore) for some time for Russian intel. When by chance she comes across a young enthusiastic Russian flight lieutenant (Ramon Navarro) with much more interesting secrets. Hot on her tail is French Secret Service chief Dubois (C. Henry Gordon). At the beginning of the movie Dubois predicts that Mata will wind up in front of a firing squad.

Will Mata deliver the goods or will Dubois' prediction come true?

Other than Barrymore's acting and the hokey Hari dance this was a well paced and emotional film.
