61 year old Pierce Brosnan’s still got the looks and ‘tude to pull off playing an ex-CIA spy who’s lured back to the game one more time in a mission that goes horribly, and very personally wrong. But Brosnan’s Peter Devereaux is not James Bond. He never wears a tux, never drinks a martini, never gets to show off the cool weapons and has to wait til the end to get the girl (Olga Kurylenko who was a Bond babe in “Quantum Of Solance”.
This film is vintage Brosnan but brings nothing new to the spy game. It’s a been-there-done-that years- ago spy flick. It’s not for the kids. It’s very violent and there’s a rape scene.
If you like spy flicks, you could do worse. But you could do a whole lot better- as in Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s last completed role in the intelligent “A Most Wanted Man”. This one can wait for Netflix.
