From producer Ridley Scott and directed by Zal Batmanglij comes a taut, sexy thriller starring Brit Marling (Arbitrage), Alexander Skarsgard (TV's “True Blood”) and Oscar® Nominee Ellen Page. Sarah Moss (Marling) is an ambitious new recruit at an elite private intelligence firm. Her first undercover assignment is to infiltrate “The East,” an elusive activist collective that terrorizes corporate leaders who commit crimes against humanity. The more involved she gets, the more Sarah’s life is in danger in this “great conspiracy thriller” (Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News).

Well I had never heard of this movie prior to receiving it to review.

This kind of movie isn't usually the kind I would watch but I sometimes go out of my comfort zone and give different movies a chance.  The acting was great but I find the story could have been better.  I didn't find this to be a edge of my seat thriller but it was ok. I think this movie would be good to rent but personally I wouldn't buy it because it isn't something I would really watch again.

I give this 3 out of 5

The East is now available in stores
