I was not really interested to watch this movie, but everything else out there seems uninspiring. But I was actually pleasantly surprised about this movie.
This is no James Bond, but Pierce Brosnan is back as a hitman/spy kind of guy. He is a CIA spy guy that is very much part of the war industry. This actually feels like your standard movie with Tom Cruise, but with Pierce Brosnan instead.
The action scenes and the minor plot twist is pretty good, and the head shots... yes!!! Lots of shooting and deaths, especially the head crunching sounds is simply enjoyable. There is blood and gore and make Russia seems like a very violent place. There is also pretty realistic hand to hand combat.
I would say if you are in the movies and this movie is playing and it suits your timing, go for it. Its a good action flick and revealing anything else will make it less enjoyable for you.
