The whole thing has a very James Bond feel, only instead of the hero acting on official government business, this hero is evading his own government. There’s a certain polish and international quality that reminds me of 2006’s Casino Royale. Interesting that Daniel Craig visited his wife Rachel Weisz during the production of this movie in Manila.

The action is intense and well-shot. The lab execution scene is particularly chilling.

Renner pulls it off. He’s a stud. His relationship with Shearing is real and gives the story a nice foundation.
