The slow start to this suspenseful drama gives the rest of the film the credibility to be superb and memorable. Fortunately, this well directed thriller featured an extremely masterful cast with outstanding performances. The unpredictable script that was based on true events stayed solid throughout the entire feature. The only missing ligiment in this film was that there was no "007" typed action sequences that we saw in Liman's other films. Nevertheless, this is definitely fair game for "Oscar" Nominees.
