Editorial Reviews

Gordon Patrick (Nick Moran), a young CIA analyst is assigned to investigate the mysterious death of a major Russian political figure. In Moscow, Gordon meets Dina (Tara Reid), a street-smart woman with a mysterious past. She leads him down a perilous journey of no return: where organized crime, assassinations, deadly betrayal and political corruption at the highest level are just the tip of the iceberg. In the end, Gordon faces the brutal reality that those you trust the most are the ones you should trust the least… Silent Partner is a fast-paced action thriller that depicts the cutthroat savagery of international politics and organized crime.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just Shoot The Director September 30, 2010
Format:DVD
While it's not in the same class as "Gorky Park" (1983), fans of that film will find many of the same story elements, locations, and production design in "Silent Partner" (2005). It is yet another story of greedy corruption in the post-Communist Soviet Union but like "Gorky Park" it is professionally made with an expensive look and feel.

With a 96-minute running length "Silent Partner" is one of the few films that would not benefit from a little trimming. In fact, by the end you suspect that there has already been considerable trimming; and that the price for keeping all the expensively staged action sequences is the loss of so much narrative material and character development sequences that the story borders on incomprehensible.

It might be useful to keep pen and paper handy during your initial viewing, carefully tracking the assorted physically indistinguishable characters that enter and leave the film without explanation or background details, and then reappear in later sequences. But even this would not enable anyone to adequately sort through the confusion, because it is like tracking a bunch of identical size ants milling around an anthill.

At the end you are supposed to sort through the Hitchcock MacGuffin's and think how cleverly they fooled you. But all they really did was keep you in a state of dazed ignorance because you were not told enough about the motivations and the basic premise to have anticipated much of anything. This means almost every development in the story is its own little "deux ex machina" moment; "a plot device whereby a seemingly inextricable problem is suddenly and abruptly solved with the contrived and unexpected intervention of some new character, ability, or object".

2.0 out of 5 stars Ho -- Hum May 23, 2013
By Pogo
Format:DVD
After just watching it uncut on TV, I have turned to the web for an explanation of the plot & sub-plots. That should tell you all you need know. Watching it is fine for a low-key way to veg-out in front of the tube, but don't expect James Bond or Jason Bourne. It is a very basic semi-familiar story of international intrigue/theft, with unknown actors, poor continuity and lots of unexplained characters and actions. The only memorable event was a few seconds of the flawless be-thonged backsides of Tara Reid (or her body double). You can skip this movie unless you are a Tara junkie or something.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked but well worthwhile January 11, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an old-school political thriller filmed in Russia, starring actress Tara Reid (in one of her best roles). An intricate plot, outstanding location scenery and some fine performances put this one over very well. "Silent Partner" isn't a typical popcorn action flick, but it will satisfy those looking for intelligent intrigue.

A solid 3 1/2 star film, recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Coming Soon to the 2 for $5 rack! October 17, 2006
Format:DVD
First the positives, the movies is set in Russia and appears to have been filmed there or at least in eastern Europe. Even if they filmed it this way to save money, the producers deserve some credit for authenticity. The secondary "Russian" characters also seem authentic ( except Tara Reid ) and are decent actors.

Thats pretty much it for the positives. The two or three main "actors" are pretty poor. The lead character is a CIA analyst who the agency sends to the field to conduct an investigation in to a Russian Billionairs death. "Why would they send a desk officer in the field?" you may ask, well you dont have to because the movie asks this for you 30 or 40 times. Because they wanted him to fail! < gasp!>,

They do fail. Fail in making an egaging, believable, or entertaining film. Im not sure but I think the bulk of Tara Reid's part was dubbed. badly. The main character cant act. The plot goes beyond cliche to routine and boring. Car chases, villians with facial scars, crooked politicians, and a hooker with a heart of gold. And no you dont see Tara Reid naked in it either.

Its one of those movies that you watch and constantly ask "why is he doing that?"

1.0 out of 5 stars too bad its not a remake November 1, 2007
By cwede
Format:DVD
Too bad this isn't a remake of the '70's Elliott Gould thriller. Tara's head sawed off into a fish-bowl might be worth seeing.
