    2 1/2 stars for Don Cheadle being awesome. The story/plot is pretty boring. Even Ewan McGregor is mediocre here.

    As a side note, I used to be a trumpet player. And I hated it. The constant mutes and buzzing into a mouthpiece gave me the willies.

    The actiony stuff actually takes this film down a notch. But all of the political intrigue, backstabbing and espionage leading up to the last half hour or so is great.

    Not many movies have the number of "oh hey it's that guy!" moments as this movie does.

    Still corny. Still ridiculous. Still preposterous. Still outrageous. And I love the shit out of it. Love the characters, love the locales, love all the "geeky tech" talk and love the style. Lorraine Bracco is the only thing that bugs in this movie.

    The montage with the spinning phone booths... aw yeah.
