Just an unnecessarily complicated mess. I could not name one way the decisions in this make for a suspenseful movie. It's all just stuffed with terrible decision on top of terrible decision, and despite it's extremely stacked cast, only John Hurt is even close to memorable (his voice has sounded the same for the last 50 years).
No but really, outside of a good chase sequence (that's purpose I still don't fully understand), this had absolutely nothing for me. It's got jarring tonal shifts, terrible writing and extremely unlikable characters. The direction this ends up taking left me cold, given that there's no one to root for and no one to invest in.
Yeah, this cold war/government thriller is a dud. It's somehow too long at 100 minutes and I could tell from the jump as this lays it's plans out that it was going to be a miss. Just over-complicated nonsense.
