Rewatching the movie, it was actually pretty good. Mark Hamil's performance is awesome, and Stormare was actually pretty good as Hamilton.
Swedes just now how to do it! This is like a crossover of British/American thriller, more askewed towards the former but with more edge. It has its own minor flaws but the whole package was a good thriller/action. Plus, Mark Hamill had a very nice bad guy role, shame he didn't get more screentime. Finally, I must say that Hamilton makes a convincing and effective agent even if compared to older Bonds (or more so, in fact, because of the more "realistic" approach).
