I have always had a weakness for action films, and though I usually avoid ones that promise to have a lot of suspense simply because I am actually easily scared I found that this movie is fantastic despite the few areas that are full of suspence are deftly handled and add to the plot of the story rather than being just there to scare you. the plot is well thought out and executed...I must say I was surprised at the ending! although in hindsight I should have seen it coming. Anyway, I love the way it was directed, the lighting was perfect in every shot...well thought out, you know, sometimes in movies something is supposed to happen at night but it seems really bright outside? well, that doesn't happen in this movie. death scenes are believable, blood strategic rather than over the top...not that there isn't a lot of it...and really, really well acted. There weren't very many awkward parts, where you didn't believe that the charecters really were who they thought that they were. And though I normally find that political stories are a bit dry, or totally paranoid I found this one to be really engaging and not the least bit boring. On the whole it you like action films, and slightly surprising plot twists, I suggest this movie wholeheartedly.
