Someone spoil 'The Recruit' for me please (um, spoilers)

Imdb profile

Usually, I can figure out these kind of storylines given some time and maybe a second viewing, but I just don’t have the patience to watch this again. So could someone explain to me what’s goin’ on?

(By the way, has Al Pacino managed to stereotype himself? His characters are becoming more and more predictable. I like the guy, but before watching the movie I predicted that he’d be the bad guy, and bada-bing bada-boom…guess what?)


The first rule is never get caught.

There is no rule about going into a standard 10 min Pacino rant where you reveal your evil plan to a dozen agents.
