i am a Cage fan with his cool acting speech delivery. This movie kept my interest for a 20 year quest to find the terrorist who cut his ear. No explosions. Thank you dash board reviews.

Simple not too complicated spy/espionage/terrorist movie. Like anemia embellishment that was interesting. Overall good movie if you like the genre.

Every time I start a Nicolas Cage movie, I'm thinking: maybe this'll be it; finally a decent film like (some of) his early stuff. I mean, I used to enjoy his films ("Leaving Las Vegas" is a tragic favorite of mine). I don't know what happened. I guess the guy peaked, and this is his downward spiral. Or maybe my tastes have changed. Maybe I'd find his early stuff was crap too, were I to return to it. All I know is I really can't recall one good new film I've seen him in in recent memory... (okay, one -- I liked "Kick Ass"). This was no different. He was okay, but the material was weak and the ending was flat. Maybe the next one. Probably not.

Some what similar to "3 Days to Kill" that an over the hill agent was determined to hunt down a terrorist despite of his debilitating medical condition.

Watchable. But nothing special.

Another horror from Nick Cage.

A standard story, more or less, using the CIA as a backdrop. Cage does a decent job.

Cage brings it.

No CGI explosions.
Good script,..but better acting.

Evan Lake: "There are two kinds of people in this world... Men of action, and everyone else."

Lake yelling at the CIA director: I'm a liability? You fucked this up just like you freaked up everything else. Freaked up Iran-contra, freaked up Ames, freaked up 9/11, freaked up W.M.D., Afghanistan, Iraq, Benghazi. Not you yourself of course, no. No, you're just the latest in a long line of freak-ups who turned this agency into a cesspool of politics and special interests on behalf of the weapons makers and the surveillance industry, who get richer while we get weaker!

Lake spoke in front of new recruits: What the hell are you doing here? Haven't you heard? The CIA fell from the Berlin Wall and all the president's men can't put it back together again! It's broke! Not reliable. Not trustworthy. Can't stand up to the White House. Backstabbers. Watching porn, tapping phones. Best and brightest quit or retired. What in the name of Jesus Christ nailed to the cross are you doing here? Because you heard the call. The future spread out before you like a cruise-ship buffer. You were teaching in a classroom, working in a kitchen, training in a gym, and you heard the call. For some it was adventure. For some, mystique. For all, it was 9/11 and you heard the call, and it was the call of duty and love of country. Why? Because you have values!
