    Set in the late 1990s, 30 years ago, a trio of Mossad spies set out to track down a Nazi war criminal. After capturing their prey, something happens, and the war criminal escapes, but the spies decide to cover up the escape, and take credit for the apprehension and disposal of the war criminal. After spending all those decades celebrating their story, word of the war criminal's whereabouts surface, and the 3 spies must confront their past, and deal with the problem head-on as a journalist is on the trail of a story that could unravel everything for the trio. Both sets of actors for the present day, and for their younger selves give solid performances, and the direction was good, but the last 20 minutes felt a little suspect, though it was nice to see some spy skills never leave you even after 3 decades. I would suggest that Sam Worthington not attempt to do accents because he just not all that convincing when doing them. I give it 2.75 stars, or a grade of B-.
