    Hmm. Way too much story for two hours. None of the arcs worked. No real character development. No immersion. Felt very stale. None of the obstacles felt like obstacles. There didn't seem to be any real sacrifice or suffering there, except on paper.
    Action was....lots of movement, but no impact.

    Kinda entertaining, nonetheless. Even though it started to get boring after a good hour or so. Including Chiwetel Ejiofors ever so ultra-cheesy acting. I mean, he's good at it, but there's only so much über-gravitas one can take...

    Rachel McAdams was really good. Most interesting part of the whole movie.

    Felt a little weird how the german parts were cast. For a movie this serious/untrashy.
    Also, the fact, that both Germans and British, or whoever they pose to be, all speak English some with a cartoonish accent, some not, can get pretty confusing at times.

    Great and clever movie, though. Especially loved how the movie starts right where the (very cleverly thoughout and, concerning this movie, one and only) mission starts and ends right where the mission ends.
