This ain't no Die Hard!
Paul from Wicklow, 01 Sep 2010
First up, this ain’t no ‘Die Hard 4’ point whatever. This is a George Clooney movie, think ‘Michael Clayton’, think ‘Solaris’.

I have to admit i was a bit disappointed with this film, having waited for it to arrive for along time, i probably had it built up to be better than it was. Anna hendrck was good and George was his usual suave self, but it was better than alot of films lately that I have seen
