A disappointing effort from Ridley Scott.
Quite frankly boring throughout, though well told at the same time. Pure style over very little substance and when it wasn’t patronising it was so sharp is was baffling. Yes, we understand that espionage and international politics are messy, bloody and immoral, so no points for pointing that out. I got the impression that this was trying to be another Syriana, which we certainly didn’t need as that too, was boring, but we ended up with a text-book styled mess.
