- Philip Seymour Hoffman's last movie is... alright
- Backmann (Hoffman), a German espionage agent, tracks a refugee from Chechnya, Karpov, who he believes has access to significant funds that may be used for terrorist activities
- After apprehending (and interrogating) Richter (McAdams), an immigration officer who has befriended Karpov, Bachmann is able to set up a sting operation where Karpov will agree to handover significant funds to an "innocent" Muslim philanthropist Dr. Abdullah who they suspect is actually a front for Muslim extremists
- Will the sting operation work? Especially given an American diplomat (Robin Wright) has made it clear the US government have interests in this investigation
- Formulaic thriller, but still a decent enough movie to watch
- Felt a little opportunistic... terrorist movie like this right now? Meh...
- Just kind of plods along really, wasn't that engaged in it tbh until the last 10-15 minutes
3 KFC buckets out of 5, wasn't terrible, but wasn't an amazing movie either
