A fascinating tale, delivered with just enough suspense to make it engrossing without feeling over the top.
It's intricately plotted, seriously acted (Yorkshireman Toby Kebbell is convincing as Marwan's Israeli handler) and serves as a brief history lesson that's stranger than fiction.
A good introduction to the thorny and complicated relationship between Egypt and Israel, told from the perspective of a real-life hero to both countries.
The film can only scratch the surface of this amazing story, and by doing so actually makes it seem much less remarkable than it really is.
Some violence in fact-based foreign spy thriller.
Ultimately The Angel works on its whole, largely on Vromen's excellent direction and the stiff back of Kenzari, who turns in a masterful performance.
All in all, [The Angel] is an entertaining look at a little-known story from recent history.
It's a sporadically interesting, mostly dull history lesson.
Ariel Vromen is a terrific director when it comes to delicately examining complicated characters
While clearly told from the Israeli perspective, the film is rather sober in the way it conveys the message. And the pace is more Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, less Jason Bourne.
An espionage tale that's more sturdy and intriguing than thrilling, more "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" than Netflix's answer to Bourne or Bond.
