this is a grat Bruce Willis movie--although he is short lived in this film, it is still a great film as espionage goes.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance.

Decent enough movie but needed more of Willis!

I can think of one redeeming feature - the scenery at the beginning ; otherwise complete drivel. Once the scenery was gone, so was I.

Agree with the critics from Rotten Tomatoes: "Defined by needless, frenetic exertion in lieu of anything resembling inspiration." What a waste of a decent plot and actors: "Rather than defining those twists and turns with sharp punctuation, director Mabrouk El Mechri turns them into gentle speed bumps, making the film barely interesting rather than exhilarating ". My take was a movie with continuous over-dramatized scenes that slowed down the drama to "enough already! move along!"

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.
