Trivia

The production notes say of Pierce Brosnan's former film career as famous British Secret Agent James Bond: "ln the 1990s, Brosnan reinvigorated the popularity of the Bond legacy in box-office blockbusters GoldenEye (1995), Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), The World Is Not Enough (1999), and Die Another Day (2002). Brosnan's first three Bond films earned over a billion dollars at the international box-office, and Die Another Day (2002) alone garnered almost a half-billion dollars worldwide." See more »

What a load of tripe!!!
29 May 2015 | by fallyhagSee all my reviews

So many stars in this film then it just has to be amazing. Oh how wrong I was. My only guess is that they are doing this film as a favour to someone.

The story is so non-sensical it just leaves you gobsmacked that they had the nerve to write it. The story is one long cliché after another and relies heavily on coincidence, chance and one hell of a lot of luck.

If you choose to watch this then I guarantee you will talk all the way through it. You will constantly repeat that it doesn't make sense. That would never happen. They could never do that. That is too convenient. Why is the ambassador now a security expert?

I'm sorry but there is no way I can recommend this. I gave it four stars well, just for the stars that were in it. They are all top actors. But they have sold out on this one. It is a dud : (
