A couple of months prior to the film's release date, Relativity Media, most likely due to the mild success of their other spy film before 3 Days to Kill (2014), wanted to edit the film down to a PG-13 to get a broad audience that wouldn't have to wait for DVD or sneak in to watch it. But due to the film's violence, language and mature content, the film was released with an R rating for its US theatrical release. See more »

I thoroughly enjoyed this flick and was still impressively entertained by Mr. Brosnan, just like with 007. The story has multiple levels, keeps you guessing and second-guessing people's ambitions and allegiances. Acting is nice, not too shabby. Action is well paced and promotes the idea of 'intelligent agents' with weaknesses (that they actually figure how to avoid). As to the story itself - yes, it's a lot of this and that, which we've seen a lot, but suspend your belief for a second and you might just see how much heart was put into this movie - and they really don't make them like this anymore. So, if you're a fan of Pierce, loved his 007 acting and enjoy some political drama, this will not disappoint you.
