Noomi Rapace fractured her nose during filming when an elbow accidentally hit her face. She, however, didn't realize the extent of the injury until much later so, after a brief black out, she just got up and insisted on carrying on with the scene. As of April 2015, the fracture had yet to be mended and had healed up in a broken state (meaning it needs to be re-broken up again in order to fix). See more »

An Interesting Crime Thriller Spy Drama Full of Twists
To tell you the truth, I did not know anything about this movie. I had neither seen the trailer nor read the synopsis to it. So you could imagine my surprise when we were given twist after twist through out the whole movie. My wife and I were pretty surprised of the first twist and we were kept on guessing till the very end (Although some twists were easier to guess than others), but nevertheless we were quite entertained.
The main story itself was a bit stereotype about terrorists plotting to do some horrifying attack and must be stopped at all costs. But the interesting part was actually those surprising twists. In addition, the fighting and gun shooting scenes were surprisingly good. The sound effects particularly during the guns blazing were cool and added the element of suspense. One more thing that I liked about this movie was the fact that they really used real-time method like in 24 TV series starring Kiefer Sutherland.
This may not be an instant classic crime thriller movie, but I personally felt that this one was not too bad. In fact it was pretty enjoyable and it even had some brief funny moments. The movie also had some interesting large cast of well known stars with John Malkovich whom I dubbed as the star performer despite having limited screen time. Orlando Bloom sadly looked old in this movie (totally unlike his performances as Legolas that made him became a ladies' favorite). While Noomi Rapace started to build her own rapport as lead star of thriller/action movies.
Now if you are a fan of a crime thriller movie with multiple twists through out the movie, combined with brief action sequences every now and then, you should give this one a try and see it for yourself. But if you are not a fan of such genre, or if you prefer a very intelligent crime thriller drama, then perhaps this would not really satisfy you.
