I had high expectations for this movie and was a bit disappointed.
The plot has enormous potential, but does not fully cut it. With all the revival of the cold war, double agents, high tension situation with China and all kinds great stories, anything is possible. The movie tries a lot but just does not fully pull through. I don't know if it is the pace of the movie or the fact that the plot only scrapes the surface, that is the reason for this.
Angelina Jolie is kind to the eyes and does a good job acting. The rest of the crew does an acceptable job as well.
It has a lot of action, but not a whole lot. Maybe it should either have been more or less, as it really falls a bit between two chairs.
If you like spy or modern cold war movies or just want to enjoy Jolie, the movie is recommendable. For action addicts, this is too slow.

Pretty good movie. Had som cool twists and turns in it even though they leave a few key elements out... I guess they would be hard to explain.
The idea is that an old Russian government has initiated a program, that put Russian spies/agents within the US government and that these can be activated on "Day X" to deploy a attack on USA from within. Pretty original idea.
Angelina Jolie has a nice role and does a good job in it! She makes the unbelievable action sequences seem pretty believable.
Over all good flick...!
