Excellent movie. Clooney's acting is subtle and understated, providing a look into the life of an agent who knows he's gone one job to far and decides to get out. Not for someone who hankers after the action of a Tomb Raider but for someone who wants an entree and not just a fluffy dessert, this is a movie that will remain vivid in their mind long after the empty thrills of others have fled with time.
Slow, boring, depressing and full of cliches. We kept waiting for it to pick up energy. It never did. Don't waste your money on this one.
HORRIBLE: My wife and I didn't have a clue what it was all about. I had to come home and read Wikipedia and it didn't make it much better. Extremely slow and hard to keep awake. Surprised that Clooney would appear in such a movie as he is normally a very good actor. We went at matinee time and not many folks in attendance, however, three walked out. And as we were leaving heard a couple say, "what was that all about". Suggest you save your money.........
What a disappointment and waste of $16!! Kept thinking it was going to get better. Never happened. George needs to go back to the drawing board or select a different book for a movie, or both.
