Miscast Lead
30 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

And wow boring. I'm amazed by all these positive reviews. This is shallow, uninteresting tripe. Nice cinematography captures definite period feel, but, wow, who cares. BORING. Apart from the lead a poor use of talented people.

A reviewer on another site said (and I agree wholeheartedly), 'If you're watching this because you think it's about the origins of James Bond, think again. As Mr. Fleming would tell you, the prototype for Mr. Bond was actually Sydney Reilly, a real life spy that nearly usurped Lenin. Probably the best dramatization of Reilly is called, "Reilly: Ace of Spies," and stars Sam Neill. Highly recommended.'

"Reilly: Ace of Spies" is riveting. This is not.
