Ian Douglas: In this week's dismal line up, this is the only bright spot. It's one of those full-of-devious-twists type movies, where, as it says itself, nothing is what it seems. I suppose it is trying to convey the problems that real spooks have, in knowing who to trust and when, when everyone is suspicious. It works okay as a thriller, although the last few twists are a little hard to swallow.
