Mother: [walking in a busy market square] You really will have to rethink your lifestyle, you know?
Pregnant Daughter: What lifestyle are you taking about, mum?
Mother: Wine only on Fridays. And try to think about dark green vegetables.
Young Man on Cellphone: [appearing another video monitor] So really, that's the same as saying we'll never see each other again. Well it is. It just is.
Woman on Cellphone: [on another monitor] How can I do anything if I don't know what you want?

How do you mess up a good hand?
24 December 2013 | by Rob-O-CopSee all my reviews

Well watch this film to find out. Good actors, great locations, beautiful cinematography, what's left? oh, script and direction. Actually it's not that simple, It's hard to figure out just what is bad about this film. The pacing is out, it comes across as kinda boring, making out the sinister in the mundane and then turning down the heat. The all powerful unstoppable MI5 apparently has only a handful of operatives. The same people seem to be on 24 our call to do cliché henchmen work. Organisations that are all knowing and powerful seem to trip over their feet in the next scene. The ending (don't fight it, it's bigger than the both of us and in the end it is for the public good) was a decent point to make, but oh what a crappy way of making it. This film ended up being confused instead of exciting and intriguing. What a waste of good resources.
