Sidney Poitier and River Phoenix.
A teenage boy has to come to terms with the truth that his parents have been living a lie, they are in fact Russian sleeper agents. A new twist on parent-child conflict in a coming of age film. Agent Sidney Poitier helps Phoenix come to accept the truth and deal with the consequences.
To say the America-Russia paranoia thing is old is an understatement, but it did provide the basis for a mountain of books, films and drama, (Le Carre's Smiley's People etc). Phoenix is convincing in the role and in his emotions.

Poitier and River Phoenix should be good for a masterpiece, but this film is badly directed and made into a slow and dull spy story. The boy Phoenix is certainly beautiful but is made to overact here. Poitier is held in overlong closeups and apparently told to move his eyes about. Not very exciting. One of the villains is shot in the heart and drops to the ground, but then, like most film villains, gets up and runs about and is still chippy at the end. Nothing is very realistic. For the climax, the boy and his spy parents get lovey-dovey and walk away arm in arm. Not into the sunset. A cop then says to the FBI agent 'Same old same old', and he replies 'Same old same old.' Dazzling dialogue, eh? - but not a bad description of the film.

By AK TOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 Oct. 2009
Format: DVD
The movie follows a young boy (Phoenix) being confronted with the fact that his parents are sleeper agents - this latter fact being hammered home by Poitier.

The acting is generally of a good quality and all the figures seem reasonably convincing. However the story upon which the movie is based is weak to say the least. It looks like a complete layman's interpretation of the cold war conflict and how the various parties would behave. The little details, such as the border crossings, interactions between agents etc. are all wrong, and not particularly believable to boot.

While it is not painful to watch, it is also not enriching, superbly entertaining, or enlightening.

I will be honest the story line for this film is not to my taste more for those who like action and police dramas. But this film is really good thanks to the acting skillS of River Phoenix who plays Nikita, a boy known as Nick, who finds out not only have his parents been living a lie and are really Russian spies but his real name is Nikita! Also stars Sidney Potier...does that man ever age? A really good film with no relation to the Elton John song in case you were wondering...:D

Good start....River acted well.Very good serious acting by Sidney.Odd ending,not sure why or why it ended that way.
