    My Verdict:

    Green Tea says:
    Watching this movie does not reminded me of the greatness in Fargo. I thought that these concept of blackmailing and sex farce involving the CIA agency are a good idea and offer more differences from other related movies. Yes it was but unfortunately I was not impressed by the way the humours that were supposed to be in the movie. Call it a dark comedy but I was not amused at all. Why? The jokes didn't work or simply they don't fit well into the movie? Both...

    Despite having a great assemble of actors that may improve the rating of the movie, these was poorly countered by a slightly average story. George Clooney been paranoid doesn't seems to be convincing. John and Brad were so-so with their contrast desperation of act on certain scenes but I think the rest had pull up a great job. A star studded that can be considered shines a little.
