Interesting but just not that great
1 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A mediocre spy flick, not worth the last hour, this movie could have been a lot better with better editing, to liven it up and make it a good chunk shorter. It takes a nose dives and stalls somewhere in the middle, despite its realistic plot line.

Michael Parks did a great job as an actor, there were other good performances from some others in the cast, however I had trouble finding the character of Francesca believable because her emotions sometimes conflicted with the scene she was in.

As far as this one goes, i would avoid it and watch something like SpyGame, its a little more far-fetched but at least it wont put you to sleep (yes i think the government has the Tech to screen every phone call) As to you crackpots out there rating this movie a 10, how can this movie be everything that every other movie is not, and worth a perfect score?
