Great writing, with good dialogue, and humorous moments. Totally "kick-butt" action, good car chase. I would love it if this could be a series, like the "Bourne" series. Tom Cruise never disappoints ! It's a shame that this got buried in all the holiday movie "Oscar " rush. If they're smart, they'll keep it around awhile, and give it wider distribution, so everyone can see it. I'm recommending it to everyone I know !
