Movie Review - The Company You Keep (*1/2)


The Company You Keep is a political movie about the group the Underground Weatherman who were back during the 60's protesting Vietnam and the government. This is a serious movie, they say a thriller but mostly tension.

They committed a crime and someone was killed along the way. 30 years later they are still hiding out but soon will be exposed by a news reporter Ben played by Shia LaBeouf. The FBI is searching for this man. Robert Redford plays Jim a lawyer and dad to a young girl. Susan Sarandon plays Sharon a married mother of two children. Secrets must come out as one man sets on his journey to convince someone to come forward about the truth so he can be set free.  Watch to find out if he is set free or captured by the FBI for a crime he may or may not have committed.

I thought Robert Redford, Shia LeBeouf and Susan Sarandon played their characters in the movie very well.

The movie was very long a little over 2 hours it was kinda slow and took awhile to reach what the movie was really about.

I would say wait for the movie to come out on dvd and then watch it.

Rating-*1/2 out of 4 stars
