"Damned good film which keeps you focused on the screen and not on your watch for the entire 2.5 hours. Ambitious, thrilling with good performances from all. Mark Strong really is great. A couple of dialogues just ever so nearly strayed into cringe-worthy US political territory but just managed not to go too far thankfully. Go see this film, you won't be disappointed if you're looking for an intelligent story, intelligibly told and well acted. Ridley Scott's direction is fast-paced and captivaing. Let him direct the next Bond please!!"
