Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

This loud, brash and misfiring thriller stars Noomi Rapace in full-on kick-ass mode as a CIA interrogator up to her armpits in espionage and intrigue in a London under threat from biological attack. However, who can she trust among her superiors? John Malkovich? Michael Douglas? Toni Collette? Cue a succession of fisticuffs and gunfights papering over the cracks in a lazy script that liberally dispenses with logic. Rapace is fairly good as a distaff Jason Bourne, though why she chooses to hang out with Orlando Bloom, fresh from the Dick Van Dyke school of cockney accents, is an even bigger puzzle than the plot. Director Michael Apted, usually a steady and reliable hand, offers little more than jaded spy-game platitudes, only occasionally enlivened by the action sequences. There's nothing much to shout about in a pedestrian yarn that resembles a slightly above average episode of small-screen fare like Spooks.
