The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
In this film, everything comes down to the acting. Chris Cooper, one of our finest screen actors, gets inside the mysterious traitor. Ryan Phillippe has just the right gung-ho determination tempered with a touch of naivete as O'Neill. Meanwhile, Laura Linney nails the role of a career agent.

Newsweek - David Ansen
A wonderfully taut cat-and-mouse thriller.

Village Voice - Unnamed
This is a spy movie bereft of the genre's usual, casual kicks. It's not interested in cheap thrills or playing gotcha with the audience. (Which isn't to say parts of it aren't exhilarating.)

L.A. Weekly - Scott Foundas
Here is one of the best American actors (Chris Cooper) in one of his best parts.

Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
Now Ray has directed his second film, the abysmally titled Breach, and it's a bona fide companion piece, another true-life tale of duplicity gone secretly insane.
