Trivia

The newspaper Oliver is trying to read is, according to Ben, De Volkskrant, which is an existing Dutch morning newspaper. However, the name written at the top of the page is "Volkskrante Trouw". "Volkskrante" is not a proper Dutch word, and "Trouw" is actually a different newspaper, owned by the same publisher. See more »

Ridiculous.
8 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

I knew in the first ten minutes that this was a bad movie, bit I tried hard to make it through the end. I was unsuccessful.

It tries to be a cool spy flick, but completely fails on nearly every level. It's just done wrong. The dialog is hackneyed and unrealistic, as are the situations that the characters are put into. I just couldn't suspend my disbelief at any point long enough to get into the story.

Topher Grace is terrible in this. He's simply not believable as an FBI agent, even one that's a snotty know-it-all with a masters degree. Richard Gere and Martin Sheen tried their best to work with the material given, but to no avail.

Shame too, because other than Topher Grace, there's a solid cast and a half-decent premise. It's completely let down however by sub-par writing and consistently poor directorial choices.

Not worth watching, even on Netflix. There are plenty of WAY more interesting films in this genre to waste time with this turkey.
