Goofs

The lead describes a bullet as traveling 4000 feet per second. Fast 7.62 x 51 rounds travel at less than 3000 fps. Some long range hunting and target rounds can move at 4000, but would not be the choice for an assassin. See more »

Not as bad as some guys reviewing here are telling you
27 September 2014 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

True, the plot is predictable to some degree and the movie is definitely not Bourne or Casino Royale (2006). This doesn't mean that is trash, though. There are lots o middle places between a master piece and an totally awful movie.

One of the main problems is that in a couple of moments the information is delivered in a sloppy way and this creates some momentary confusion on the viewer. But it doesn't last long. There are also some scenes that stretch too far the disbelief suspension that any movie of that kind invariably asks for. But if you can look past those flaws, you will be entertained by a movie that delivers. Brosnan does his thing, there are good action scenes, got some decent plot twists, acting is average...

Don't get put off by the haters. All in all, a decent spy flick. Just keep your expectations at a mainstream level and you won't be disappointed.
