I would certainly recommend this movie. Denzil was great and I think this was one of his better films since training day and American Gangsta.

Not bad. I thought the story was pretty good. Acting was good. Setting was cool. Action scenes where decent. Pretty good for an action movie.

A murky look at the ethically-challenged exploits of the intelligence/covert ops community. Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington) is a disaffected (and ruthless), ex-CIA operative, who split the program a decade earlier, and has been selling out the company ever since. Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds) is a relatively inexperienced "housekeeper" who maintains a South African "safe house" for "field emergencies". When the house is hit by an unidentified commando unit that assassinates the cadre holding Frost, Weston ends up with a dangerous rogue agent in his custody. The two men are locked in a deadly battle of wits, while shadowy teams zero in, determined to remove them both from the equation.

Cracking film--action and intrigue all the way through. Ryan Reynolds shows he can act.

This one is very predictable and so it's not really worth watching. The actors do a decent job, but the screenwriting isn't good at all.
