    There's nothing wrong with this standard thriller about a CIA operative in the Middle East going after secret terrorist leaders, it just doesn't stand out is all. There's a standard romance, standard machinations, standard twist at the end. Eh.

    One of Ridley Scott's most underrated movies.

    I don't know what to say. It's a good movie. But I just feel I have no personal interest in the story. It's well done and all...so...good for them. And let's remember everybody...This is Lenny D's big 10-0

    I disagree with other people, this movie had action, a great screenplay, and great performances. The concept wasnt really original, but Ridley Scott just makes it work. I really enjoyed this movie.
