Just got back from a crowded early screening of this film this afternoon and, while the picture is flawed in some ways, it impressed me in others. The film didn't strike me as being all that similar to the trailers, which seemed to make it look like a Bruckheimer-ish picture (another "Bad Company"), but it's actually a very enjoyable plot-driven thriller, with only a few moments of action. The film's plotting often takes from other thrillers, but there were enough twists and turns that I didn't see coming to keep me interested. The performances are also excellent: Pacino's wonderful in a supporting role, Colin Farrell offers a terrific performance and lastly, Bridget Moynahan is very good in her first real, substancial role. Good technical credits, too: a fine, tense score from Klaus Badelt ("K-19"), sleek, attractive cinematography from Stuart Dryburgh and fine editing. The movie's look is bold and intense, but never too rapid-fire. Not a flawless movie - it twists a few too many times for its own good now and then - but I found it very entertaining. One of the better films of the new year.
