Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Has loads of twists and all the ritualistic pessimism you expect, but none of the political and moral outrage that might have elevated this genre story into a le Carre one.
Fresh: McGregor brings depth to the role. He beautifully portrays his character's thinking: His sharp, inquisitive eyes and thin lips seem forever caught between a smile and a grimace.
Fresh: A lesser entry, but there's much to recommend.
Fresh: Fans of spy novelist John le Carre may take umbrage with the reworked ending, but the film is nonetheless a riveting and accomplished work.
A good, solid flick!
I enjoyed this movie very much. All the actors are very good and their talents, including Naomie's beauty, definitely carry this move to the end. The storyline is relevant to what's happening in the world today and is also interesting enough to keep you watching all the way to the end. There are few parts that don't make sense, like the daughter still having her phone, but generally the story is very solid. You see the characters change and grow as the story progresses with an ending that may just put a smile on your face. It was a very good movie. Again, Naomie's smile and legs will make any movie interesting. It's not the kind of movie that is going to rock your world, but it is definitely a good watch for a cool autumn evening snuggling up on the sofa.
A little absurd
The movie is enjoyable but it's a throwaway film mainly because the characters in the film encounter the most absurd situations, and react to them in the most unrealistic way possible. For me, It ruins the suspension of disbelief.
