I thought that this movie had promise. I like Michael Douglas and Kiefer Sutherland. The problem was that Kiefer was Jack Bauer, and Michael Douglas was boring. If the movie had showed more Kiefer shooting and being a bad-ass, then maybe I would have liked it more. I feel that the book was probably infinitely better. I bet the book would have kept you guessing as to who was actually the traitor. I found it easy to see through the "complex" plot. I was bored about 45min into the movie. As far as Eva, her character had potential, but turned out to have no point. Her bilingual ability never came into play, AT ALL. What was the point of it? They never delved into her time with Douglas. They barely hit the connection between Mike and Kiefer. All in all, a great movie to rent, but a waste of money at the box office.
