Elevator Pitch A former CIA man is drawn out of retirement to recover his former lover from Moscow, but during the operation she is shot by a man who used to be his protégé. He becomes a pawn in a power play by disident personnel in the CIA as he attempts to protect a young woman who knows things and his daughter who knows nothing.
Content A lot of shoot-outs with sniper rifles and hand guns, one or two car chases several explosions, all taking place in the streets of Belgrade. Some nudity in a nightclub, one non revelatory sex event, lots of drinking.
A View I am a fan of both the stars, but even so it did not quite hit the spot for me. Maybe the plot was a bit complex, and the scenario just a bit too much of a cliché. I seem to have seen many movies involving rogue CIA operations. Nor was it much liked by the critics but in movie terms it did not cost much and so made money. A watch while doing something else.
