Robert De Niro,
Good thriller suspense movie. Takes place in Bogota Columbia. The story is excellent and the set is good. The direction of the actors is mediocre--having them over ham scenes--which makes them look like bad actors.
This would have been X rated in my youth but not in a tawdry way---An added plus to the movie.
Basically if I say too much about the plot it will ruin it however stick with it to the end....the first half is somewhat cheesy (trying too hard inauthentic unsubtle etc...).
If this was an American movie would give it a 6. Since this one takes place in one of my favorite fantasy places Bogota--it gets an 8.
