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

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.


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

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.

Local library? What's that? wink
