Trivia

One alias used by the conspirators is 'Markus Wolf' which refers to the famous head of the East German foreign intelligence service by the same name. One of his biggest achievements was to place a top spy, Günter Guillaume, as an aide to the former Chancellor of West Germany, Willy Brandt. Brandt is also the last name of the female CIA operative.

solid action thriller
27 September 2012 | by adam-quaneSee all my reviews

I am a big fan of this genre, a genre that has been almost soaked of its originality, like most thriller i have watched, it didn't surpass the Bourne series but it was a series of clichés that was more comforting than worrying, Aaron Eckhart gives a very good performance as the lead character Ben Logan.

Liana Liberato gives a genuinely good performance as Eckharts estranged daughter Amy, who has been persuaded by Logan to leave her grandfathers custody in America in order to move to Belgium, to be with him.

The film starts off quite slow, but when the credits ran i was very happy with what i had witnessed, a good addition to the thriller genre.
