She can give them the name of someone who can prove it. His friend says that she will only come to him. So he goes and she gets the info and tries to get out but the man finds out and tries to stop her.Written by
In the movies you can see a 60 years old bottle of the Single Malt Mortlach. It would take over 30.000$ to purchase such a bottle. Nevertheless is the shown design of the bottle not original. In reality it has a completely different design. See more »
Devereaux's fingernails are badly chewed, but the fingers that scroll through the phone left by Natalia after she was killed are well-manicured. See more »
I'm going back to work.

Don't worry, I checked her out.
Scenario: Agent falls in love with girl. Agent runs an op. Girl gets kidnapped. The other guys want to know the agent's source. What does he do? What do they do to the girl, hmm?
Is there a point to this?
Yeah, over your right shoulder.

Us or them?
How the fuck should I know? Does it really matter? You feel the need for a relationship? Get a dog.

The last film I saw Brosnan in - Love Punch - was almost as bad as Mama Mia. What was he thinking? Apart from Daniel Craig, I like him as the best 007. So, having read some of the reviews on IMDb I had very low expectations.
However, this is a good film if you like Brosnan as the secret agent. I don't understand why some reviewers don't get the story. It's pretty simple to follow even though the end is half expected. He is gritty enough (just) with the couple of scenes of him drinking not quite making the cut. The action scenes were quite good and Olga Kurylenko added the eye candy.
So, I disagree with the haters. This is definitely worth a watch.
