This movie was very good. However, there was one detail that really took away from the whole tone.....the accents. Now I should think a German and Russian accent would not be that difficult to take on - especially when dealing with very talented actors. Jude Law's cockney-sounding(?)inflection was really distracting to me. I fail to see why the creators seemed to go for realism in every other sense, but let such a major point - the spoken word - lapse into something that just did not fit into the big picture. A minor correction like adopting the proper accent(or as near as one could get)would have made a huge difference in the realism of the piece. But that's just me, I guess.
Everything else - storyline, acting, effects were all very convincing.
