Something was missing from this film to earn it more star-rating. It just didn't keep my attention.

An excellent, underrated thriller, One of Leo's best (my dear...).

Not my normal flavor of film. It was done well for it's type. DiCaprio does an amazing job as the CIA agent. There are a few scenes in which if you know his views on current affairs, you can tell came strait from the heart! Crowe is equally as good and the smug arrogant jerk calling the shots. Best of all however is Strong's portrayal of Hani. You forget the actor is from London... and the fact that it is a well done hairpiece he has on. in other words, his portrayal is so brilliant you completely forget it's him.

This DVD movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. Very predictable but still entertaining.

Suspenseful and gut-wrenching film about the dirty doings of the CIA and other "intelligence" agencies in the name of combating "terrorism". Di Caprio and Crowe are outstanding and the action is non-stop. A must-see.

Messed up and could hardly watch the movie.

An above average espionage thriller. Based in the reality of our fight against terrorism, I thought DiCaprio did a really good job with making his character tough but likeable. The story is pretty good, with a few moments of very high tension.
