Much, much better than the sporadic "1" reviews indicate
5 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is the first large picture recently that actually had a challenging and interesting plot, which I enjoyed, especially the ending. I did not find it especially violent compared to many other films, and the nudity hyped in the preview is actually rare and strictly plot related, not gratuitous. This is a harsh film, but that is the subject matter it deals with, and it is well done, not the frivolous treatment espionage usually gets in a shaken not stirred manner.

I liked this film, and found it very entertaining, and it had a story I felt really captured the dangerous and stressful situations in the spy world. Probably not for everyone, but if you want a good edgy thriller, this is it. The cast was very good, everybody brought their best game in my view. Those that trashed the cast have a real credibility problem.

Not perfect, but a lot better than many recent film escapades getting much better reviews, so judge for yourself. If you like a serious thriller, you will enjoy this.
