    My Verdict:

    Green Tea says:

    This is not an ordinary spy thriller you will always seen, at least not wioth this one. I think this movie will be ignored by us, considering that no big name you probably familiar with. Don Cheadle is a good actor which has play many vital roles in The Ocean's Trilogy, some comedy feature and comical role, as well proving that he is also awesome in actioner. In this movie, he is pretty serious an dhis role is a swing between good and bad. I cannot say this is a spy thriller as it proclaim it is, the story line is hampered by short-cut narrative style which may not be well flown. Basically, it is trying to pick up a lump of pieces of story, sew it back and you get a story. But beware, I don't find the movie is easy to follow and appreciable. Not many awesomeness you can find from this movie, what do you expect so much from a cheap budget actioner!  Besides again a critically spectacular performance by Don himself, there are some twist you will never expect and there can be considered a "wow" factor. I think this movie may ended up ignored since I don't think it will be released anyway sooner but it is a piece of entertainment you can try to watch!!

    2. I ran across an interesting new Spy Thriller by the name of Epire of Lies, That I Highly suggest. It's a very interesting story about a hardened Christian on the search for the last revelation of the Qur'an. You can Check out this review of it
