To be honest, I wasn't sure about this flick. I mean, I always had a weak spot for Hugh Grant but a thriller?!? It didn't seem to be a genre for him and, indeed, it didn't get much loved when it was released. To my surprise, I thought it was not bad at all.

Of course, since it is an American production, you have the usual unnecessary chases, action scenes and, obviously, the annoying twist(s) at the end but, still, I actually enjoyed most of it. Indeed, Michael Apted is a very decent director, especially when he is given the right material. I was also rather surprised by Hugh Grant who was actually pretty convincing and much more interesting that the typical macho tough guys that you usually get in this kind of production.
