    This movie was criminally underseen, it's a great espionage thriller.

    The shoot-out scene is one of the best action sequences I've seen in a long time. I'm definitely buying this one.

    Total crap. There's only one action scene, and it's way overhyped. I don't care if it's the Guggenheim, it was still a craptacular shootout that pales in comparison to the genre leaders (Bourne, Bond, etc) and is even worse than the ones in Bangkok Dangerous.

    The plot made no sense at all, the finale was anticlimactic, and most of the movie was just plain old boring.

    Pretty much, this was nothing more than a populist propaganda piece about how banks are teh evil. That wouldn't be so bad if the plot and sole action scene weren't so horrible.

    If you're really curious about the Guggenheim shootout, give it a rent. But the movie is DEFINITELY not worth owning. Total crap.

    Tell us how you really feel. This did seem to get pretty mixed review from friends etc. Still will give it a rent prolly.

    The first over-looked gem of 2009.

    This was Tom Tykwer's best film since RUN LOLA, RUN.

    I'm a huge fan of both Clive Owen & Naomi Watts, and they're first-rate here. The opening scene sent chills down my spine and I thought the Guggenheim sequence was the best movie shoot-out since HEAT (and in my opinion, that's saying a lot).

    Picking this up first thing June 9th.

    The film is really slow and only have an action that is really good but I find the action to be the only good part of the movie, I like Clive Owen and Naomi Watts but I didn't like the movie so much, the movie is a solid rental but not a purchase for me

    Durn burn it! I need a better excuse to plop down the inflated $28 to get this to see Ms. Watts latest. Never rented - never expect to.
