Well acted and directed. Visually, it's fine. But the script is very weak: Ham-fisted dialogue, by-the-numbers cop-and-con team up. If you haven't seen something in this movie countless times before, you'll see things coming. It's okay, just not very original or well-written. Surprised Idris did this one.

Elba has done better movies. Over acting at first but as movie progressed it improved.

I found this movie very entertaining. No fast forward button needed. Good intricate plot. Well acted. I recommend.

I really liked this action packed fast paced drama with the sexy Idris Elba and the actor who I believed played Robb Stark in the Game of Thrones show.

The story is predictable but still enjoyable with plenty of action. Idris Elba was the rogue CIA, which I didn't really see his character as rogue, but it was the story line. Action throughout the movie makes it a watchable and the sidekick character blended well with Elba. My final thought, it's a pretty good movie.

Preposterous, contrived, empty-headed "thriller" -- don't waste your time,

Decent, if rather cliche, action/adventure movie with a rogue cia agent and redeemable thief. Nicely intriguing plot, but the lack of character development and rather weak ending spoils what would otherwise be a solid movie. Worth watching but it could have been better.

Are you familiar with Deep Net cryptocurrency transactions?
-I don't bank online.
Right. You're a field guy. Your last op, Anbar, you were tasked surveillance, but you did a little more than that. Without clear visual evidence, you broke cover to take down six suspects who you alone had ascertained were carrying concealed explosives. I'm curious, are you saying you knew what they were carrying underneath their clothing before engaging?
-Oh, yeah. Like I could tell you, Tom... got tighty whities on, right?
But in the process, you exposed your key informant, Fatima Hamza. Two years building her trust, infiltrating the terror network, wasted.
-It was a calculated risk.
Really? Because your Baghdad CO describes you as reckless, insubordinate and irresponsible toward human assets. You recognise that description?
-No, but I recognize an asshole when I see one.
