Entertaining fast paced good- versus- evil movie. John Cusack is GREAT as CIA agent Emerson Kent. Plot/story line is very believable, which makes the movie feel more realistic in a good way. Doesn't get bogged down in unnecessary dialogue.
A spy thriller in which a CIA operative is assigned to protect a code operator in a concrete bunker somewhere in Britain. Not that "thrilling" because it became too predictable but it contains some decent shootouts and other intrigue.
