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

    This movie was a great entertainment for me. It was GREAT seeing Pierce in a more unique role, and also great to see him pull it off so well. Jamie Lee was her regular spectacular self and Geoffrey Rush was brilliant. The plot keeps you thinking and it adds a bit of comedy to keep you interested.

    I thought the plot was thought provoking and the idiocy of the British and US governments was a plus! Brosnan in a real change of character and Rush is brilliant.

  1. Forget the end and there is much to enjoy here.
  2. The first really good spy movie about the impossibility, under present historical circumstances, of making a really good spy movie.
  3. The script gets so silly, the Monty Python troupe would reject it.
