    Sits awkwardly between shoot 'em up and psychological thriller without offering the excitement of either.

    A predictable hodgepodge of uninteresting psychological cat-and-mouse, dimly lighted action.

    This dreary spy drama is as flat and airless as the concrete bunker in which it unfolds.

    Unfairly maligned by most everyone who seemed to be demanding Grosse Pointe Blank II. This definitely is not that movie. Also not the standard action thriller suggested by the trailer. It is a very good existential portrait of a spy/assassin ground down by the reality of his profession. Emerson Kent could be Martin Blank, 15 years later, if he had missed his high school reunion. Cusack's performance reminds me a bit of John Hurt's anxiety- ridden killer in The Hit (1984). Full Review »

    Actually a really suspenseful movie new concept, no overly complex backstory, characters that aren't overexplained. John Cusack carries the movie, the bad guys are bad and believable, the narrative is structured for slow unveil. Worth watching. No clue why the critics hated it. Full Review »

    And all the nonsense we do not even say that the actors brought this horror on their backs. I do not understand what he was director and screenwriter Do not Look! Anyone who does so, that would take! Full Review »
