"Little originality at all in this film. Given that Hanks can choose what to do, why do this? It tells us nothing we don';t know and is almost apologetice for looking forward at the consequences of apparent lack of further US involvement in Afghanistan. Comic - yes, in parts, but easy laughs about the US congress and oneupmanship of the CIA man who knows his stuff better than his superior. Bland and predictable. I was looking for a real twist at the end to make the point. It was vaguely there and understated in the extreme. Were we supposed to be glorying too in a man whose goal seemed to be to kill Russians?"
