A stellar cast, brilliant storyline and some of the most spectacular action scenes I've seen in years - this is the film of the year to see. A lot of reviewers have criticized various aspects of the film, but I could not be more impressed with the full package. Characters surrounded by smoke and mirrors mean you never know who to trust, but Dominic Cooper works as a perfect tandem with whomever is on screen alongside him. I think my only gripe would be someone larger than life against him, maybe Arnold Schwarzennnnnn
6.5 out of 10 (by pub-21)
Six and a half stars is what I rate this one as just said ten to bolster the average. It's not the best movie you will ever watch but not a bad effort considering. Don't know what the budget was but my bet would be "Not much" on todays standards. So pretty good effort considering.
I thought this was a good movie (by bsjd-65834)
This was a good movie... Had a "Strike Back" feel to it, of which I am a fan as well. There was action and military spy type of drama. It was enjoyable and I truly dont understand the harsh criticism. Definitely worth a watch.
Love the British pace... (by judge-893-601413)
I don't know what the broohaha is about - this was a nicely paced and quite enjoyable movie. Not over the top and quite relatable
