For a few minutes , 120 or so you will feel like you are living the life of the protagonist.
A smile will be on your face throughout the movie. An anticipation will build on and you will enjoy a climax every 15 minutes or so.
This movie is one of its kind, not to mention Pierce Brosnan who looks tailor made for this role.
Every few years a movie comes that you remember throughout your life, sometimes it may appeal to one group and detract another, but the people to whom it appeals, it touches their heart and they are deeply influenced by it. It is one of those movies
After Clint Eastwood it was Pierce Brosnan who could actually play a real, relaxed , laid back, mature man in Hollywood.
