The films setup immediately drops you into the lives of dull characters and fails at making them attachable, Henry Cavill spends a lot of screen time yelling like a teenager, Bruce Willis is wasted, the cinematography is bland, the action is stale, characters are uninteresting, dialogue is dry and the plot is your cliched pursuit-of-a-briefcase spy story. Seriously, all that chaos over an object in which we're never told whatsoever what's inside of it?

The cast alone should get people interested, I mean when the least known person in the cast, at the time, is David Strathairn, that should tell you something. Some might see it as slow-moving at points and the plot is extremely detail oriented, so be prepared to pay attention. But overall, I keep going back to this movie.

The sense of composition and movement and lack thereof is extraordinary).
