Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: This dreary spy drama is as flat and airless as the concrete bunker in which it unfolds. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Apr 25, 2013

Rotten: A predictable hodgepodge of uninteresting psychological cat-and-mouse, dimly lighted action filmed by director Kasper Barfoed in standard-operating shaky-cam ... – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Apr 26, 2013

Rotten: Akerman does work hard to keep up the energy level. Cusack, though, seems bored by the superficial proceedings, which don't even offer the distraction of a real romantic connection or a suspenseful confrontation. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Apr 25, 2013

Rotten: John Cusack replays his role as a lethal operative with occupational angst for a routine thriller with a female cryptographer at secret CIA site. Dire workplace issues ensue. – Bill Stamets, Chicago Sun-Times, May 11, 2013

return to form

Cusack remains one of the understated hollywood clan, deserves more credit for his work over the years, this is a return to form and the lovely Malin puts in a convincing performance, worth watching.

Not bad.

Pacing could have been better in spots, but overall entertaining. Giving 5 stars to counter the ridiculous one star votes. There are plenty of absolutely rotten films that deserve one star, but this is not a bad movie. Popcorn action more for sure, but worth three starts at least.

Good Friday Night Rental

Curl up on the couch with your best girl and watch this exciting and entertaining spy film. It has it's own feel to it that is a little different, but is very cool. Some movies are very good, but are not quite worthy of an excursion to the theater. Please keep up the early releases.
