This was a pretty good movie overall, but it never really built to anything.  I kept expecting it to bring on the tension and build and build and build like a great spy caper, but it never did.  It felt kind of flat, but even with that said this still turned out to be very entertaining, maybe not for 8 dollars a ticket entertaining, but still it didn’t disappoint when it came to action and chase scenes.  Pierce Brosnan also did a great job in the lead – he’s still got it folks, but he is showing his age.  All in all I would have to say that this would be a great rental, but it isn’t worth paying full ticket for.

So, have you seen it or not?  Have you read the books it is based on?  Let me know.
