Despite the talent connected to the project, The Company fails to fully captivate. With so many characters and an unclear narrative trajectory, it feels like a mishmash of familiar plots and characters girded by artificial, sweeping emotion. A few characters -- like Keaton's counter-intelligence specialist -- stand out with quirky intensity, but others, including the lead character, CIA agent Jack McAuliffe (Chris O'Donnell), fall flat.

Devotees of Cold War history, spy stories, and romantic psychological thrillers will find something appealing in this well-produced project. Airing in two-hour segments, each episode feels like a feature-length film, with a unique look and tone. Though the content is surely adult, mature teens will easily handle the occasionally violent and mildly sexual elements. As for younger viewers, they probably won't even be interested.
