By Suzzane Marshall from the October 2014 Edition
Director: Roger Donaldson
Starring: Pierce Brosnan, Luke Bracey, Olga Kurylenko
“An ex-CIA operative is brought back in on a very personal mission and finds himself pitted against his former pupil in a deadly game involving high level CIA officials and the Russian president-elect.”
The reviews are quite mixed on this one. Yes it is a typical spy thriller but I always enjoy the wry delivery of Pierce Brosnan and he’s certainly not hard on the eyes. The story moves along a bit too slowly but is very well done regarding cinematography and stunts. So it is entertaining enough for an evening out and some good popcorn.
Overall IMDB rates the movie at 6.6/10 based on 4,569 user votes. I’d say that’s about right for me.
