Set in 1989, just after the fall of the Berlin Wall, film puts a potentially intriguing scenario (based on the best-selling 1977 novel of the same name by Howard Kaplan) involving espionage in the Middle East. But in 2018 it feels like a film that's out of time and, also, it's a little confusing at times. Not even John Hurt's last screen appearance as the Mossad Director can bring this one in from the cold. Basically, film suffers from a complete lack of tension and it feels almost as low-key drama not action/spy movie. As an attempt it is an odd, under-powered film to pop-up in the age of 007 or Mission Impossible.
