|Who is the real secret agent?|
It was easy - you knew when to hide behind the sofa, who not to trust and who to route for in a firefight. Of course its all changed today. Modern war films have more subtle heroes and often no real victors.. things have to be more realistic. We like this too. But lets park more contemporary classics like "Apolcalypse Now", "Green Zone", "The Hurt Locker", and even "Das Boot".
