Fast,Furious and Above average!
Verified purchase
A very good terrorist thriller about a bomb-maker / assassin known as 'The Watchmaker' who is extremely good at his job, is ruthless and in demand. Pierce Brosnan stars and is cast against type. The last time I remember seeing him in such a role was in 'The Fourth Protocol' but he is SO adaptable. Milla Jovovich is attached to the US Embassy in London and is a high-flyer whose instincts for seeking-out the bad guys is second-to-none. Co-Stars: Angela Bassett, who NEVER appears to age, Dylan McDermott - always watchable and Robert Forster. It's a well written screenplay(Philip Shelby) and is directed by James McTeigue. The only real problem I had was trying to make up my mind if Frances De La Tour was an English woman working in the US Embassy or an American woman? Her accent seemed to me at least to sound both? Edge of your seat, fast -non-stop-action.Recommended.

Lightweight conspiracy flic
Verified purchase
Alot of supposedly top professionals in hysterical or reflex stupidity. The dialogue and characterisations are thin and the all star cast has little to work with. Production values are high and it all fails on lack of credibility. Which is saying alot for a genre famous for depending on effects not narrative! There are flashes of somehing better but it has the feel of a rushed project, not fully thought through, hurried and missing a final edit, some rewriting and a few reshoots. Alot of rough edges and many places where there was poor judgment in plot development.

Can safely be missed

Easy to understand action story of bad terrorist and brave Americans
Verified purchase
Fairly good story for an action story about terrorists that want to hurt 1 million Americans - and no it's not a virus. Why are they against the USA? Because one wants to make money, the second one too and the third one is angry because the visa process is too slow - no joke.
But as justification we're informed after the move that homeland security has prevented 53 attacks after 9/11 - that raised the rating by one star...
The second star and that's no joke is for the trust of the boss in his employee. I like that, in a time where when there is a problem the first reaction of management is to find a scapegoat.

Surprisingly decent flick!
Verified purchase
It's no life-changer, but as a fan of generic action-thrillers and Pierce Brosnan this is pretty enjoyable (seeing the actor play a character that is pretty much 'What if James Bond was a villainous hitman?' was cool).
If you've got the time it's entertaining enough for a slow evening!

The forced trailers
Verified purchase
This was the first dvd that I had bought in years, and when I played it, I remembered why. I enjoyed this film very much, the only thing that annoyed me was the three very long forced trailers before the film started. I had paid for the film, so why could I not just skip through.

Nonstop action in very entertaining movie
Verified purchase
In many ways a conventional spy thriller, but has a lot of style. Milla Jovovich seems to specialise in these female action roles, probably because she is so good at them . Great to see Pierce Brosnan as a villain, moving well away from his James Bond image. (Although in my opinion he was the best of the lot!) If you want a good well-written action film, this worth a look.

Once again it's nice to see Pierce Brosnan back on the screen in this action packed movie. Although he's famously known for Bond, but has seamed lately taking the more drama/comedy role, he appears to be him old self when playing a determined hitman who will stop at nothing to get the job done. It also a pleasure to see him playing a villain, rather than being the outstanding well presented hero fan's of Brosnan are used to. The story line and plot are very weak, and supporting actors are not that very supporting. However it is an entertaining film and will certainly pass the time on a rainy afternoon. But for fan's of Brosnan and action thrillers it will be an exciting watch but not overwhelming. Enjoy anyway.

Better than expected

I had never heard of this film, and only due to Pearce Brosnan did I venture to buy it. I was surprised it was very entertaining and not at all predictable.
