Ian Douglas: Mmm looks like my rating is out of line with the other critics... Let's see why... Other reviewers saw this as a hip examination of modern married life, seeing metaphors in the violence and so on... I also saw some hints of metaphors, but the rest of the plot pushed these into a minor role.

My main problem with this movie is that the plot is so full of holes and other nonsense that it completely lost credibility. Even the ending, a rewrite of the ''Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid'' ending, defied belief as it played out, as well as not dealing with the fact that if the US 3-letter agencies want you dead, they'll keep coming at you until you are... So apart from some witty dialogue, numerous explosions and unanswered-plot-questions, there's not much else... both my wife and I left the cinema wondering, ''so what''.... in fact, we both thought it was kinda like ''Laura Croft and husband''.

But judging from some of the rave reviews above, I guess our view will be in the minority. I was originally going to give it 2.5 stars out of five, but the more you think about the storyline, the less it makes sense... and so I dropped to 2 stars.
