This is not one of the best movies Denzel Washington has been in. But like other less than perfect movies, Denzel is still Denzel which makes the movie good enough to enjoy.

Great thriller. Lots of action, lots of twists and turns (even if you do see them coming) it is still an enjoyable flick. Denzel is an excellent choice as always and Reynolds is an under-valued actor, IMHO. We also liked it because the language wasn't deplorable for once and gave our ears a break, while still managing to convey menace and suspense - imagine that!

Too much action, too little plot.

Denzel Washington did a great job playing Tobin Frost, a CIA traitor. The movie had more twists 'N' turns like screwing a crooked politician in the ground to bury them.

I was a bloody movie with a twist to who is good and wh0o is bad and what will the new recruit become.

I didn't like Seeing Denzel Washington in this role.

Good movie if you're looking for a decent action flick. Not your typical straightforward flick. Not the best thing I've seen lately - but definitely made for an enjoyable watch.

On the edge of my seat all the time. Denzel and Ryan just great together.

A "Spies are untrustworthy people" movie. Fairly predictable, lots of fighting.

Very good, well written movie, with Denzel, one of the top three male actors in America always, in top form.

Tobin Frost: I think you need to consider how your safe house was attacked in the first place. That house was a secure location. Whoever crashed it, they were invited. Someone told them, someone you know...
Matt Weston: You're not gonna get in my head.
Tobin Frost: I am already in your head!
