  1. Anyone expecting a flashy Bond-style fantasy is going to be disappointed.
  2. Only Le Carre fans with tin ears and clouded eyes will fail to note the film's sour tone, crude performances and drab look.

    Lots of fun in an evil, devilish, and absolutely delicious way. Brosnan and Rush are both wonderful.
