I don't really know what I expected from this film, but I certainly found much more than I had been looking for. Given that it stars Chris Rock, I did expect a great deal of irreverent, silly comedy. What I found, instead, was an interesting spy film and a very, very odd buddy picture.
The acting from both Rock and Hopkins is exceptional. The plot, while a bit thin, is interesting.
The film pulled me in and held me from beginning to end.
