|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.
