I decided to watch this movie at the last minute while in Bulgaria. I looked at the trailer for the movie when I got back and could not understand why there where so many negative remarks towards it. This movie has great actors (Ben Kingsley, Nicholas Hoult & Anthony Hopkins sure played the heck out of their role), plenty of action (Car chase scenes where outstanding), pure comedy gold (Ben Kingsley, enough said) and a very interesting if not engaging story. Even though at parts I would consider that the film isn't very realistic, but like all movies, there are always plot holes which is why I'm not giving it a low rating.
Overall I enjoyed the movie and would definitely watch again. Just a shame it's not yet released for the public in the United Kingdom.
