Company Business ★½ 1991 (PG-13)

Sam Boyd is a retired CIA agent who's brought back to swap Pyiotr Grushenko (Baryshnikov), a Russian mole in the State Department, for a U2 pilot being held in Moscow. The swap is to be made in Berlin and also involves $2 million of what turns out be to Colombian drug money. When things inevitably go wrong (both intelligence agencies would like them out of the way permanently) the two men find they must depend on each other if they want to stay alive. An unimaginative plot wastes a stalwart cast in this oldfashioned spy drama. 104m/C VHS, DVD . Gene Hackman, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Kurtwood Smith, Terry O'Quinn; D: Nicholas Meyer; W: Nicholas Meyer.
