Bridge of Spies is solid

5 second plot: In the heat of the Cold War a lawyer is asked to represent a Russian spy. Later on he's asked to arrange the exchange of an American pilot shot down above Russia against this spy.

5 second review: When Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks join up for a historical movie inspired by true events you already know upfront that it's a sure bet. It's beautifully shot, in a very realistic Cold War setting (no expense is spared to show the outside world as it was) and the performances are magnificent.

IMDb score: 7,9/10
