I saw this last night and I highly recommend it. As always, Denzel Washington was fantastic and even Ryan Reynolds managed to hold his own and be pretty convincing.

If you enjoy spy/political thrillers with plenty of good small arms action, this is for you.

And yes, there's a pretty good "twist" at the end of the film. smile

I saw this last weekend, a lot of action. Really good flick and worth the money seeing it!

Wow, haven't even heard of this one (don't watch much TV anyways); going to have to check it out. Ryan Reynolds can play a good "serious" character when he wants to (I thought he was really good in Smokin' Aces); and I don't think there's a single Denzel movie that I didn't like lol

Thanks for the heads up!

Denzel ROCKS, pure and simple.

Will watch this next week.

You know an actor has a special talent when he can make a morally ambiguous guy seem so likable. smile

You should watch "Burried" w/Ryan Reynolds. I loved it, think Phone booth but under ground...

A solid movie, Denzel carried it.

I found that the abundant shakey cam work bothered me however, and I've never had shakey cam issues before.

I would not recommend seeing this film. I think the Bourne series did this type of flick much better.

I actually felt sorry for Ryan Reynolds - he is always a day late and a dollar short going up against Denzel (who was awesome!).

I would say rent the film or even better get it free from your local library when available.


edit...ugh, only 53% review on RT! I did not think it was that bad. I would give it a solid 70% rating.
