Very good TV-Movie, with convincing acting by Peter Stormare. At first I simply mistook his Commander Hamilton for a typical "Bad Guy", but he really creates a complex and caring agent, who is riddled with guilt over his past actions.
A very different hero,who is (maybe for the first time) not a posterboy,but somebody you could easily mistake for a crook by his emaciated outer appearance.
Another pleasant surprise is definetly Mark Hamill,who portrays a very credible villain, sometimes a bit over the top,but still agreeable. Also interesting fact is,that his character is an ex-CIA agent,which is also rare in the thriller/action-movie genre.
Finally some congrats must go to the cinematographer, who really manages to catch the sheer depressiveness of the Russia of today. I really bought it. Great Stuff.
