From IMDb: “A couple find themselves lured into a Russian oligarch’s plans to defect are soon positioned between the Russian Mafia and the British Secret Service, neither of whom they can trust.”

Poster Rating: C / C- / C- / C / C+

Review: (#1) Visually unimpressive, but it blocks out the stars sufficiently. (#2) This feels surprisingly more generic than its predecessor even if it’s a little more off-kilter. (#3) A weak, colorless affair that tries to be new while being incredibly old.

(#4) Like the other designs, this one borrows heavily from other creations and does so without a sense of playfulness or inventiveness. (#5) While certainly not original, it’s distinctive and that’s enough to make it the best of this sorry bunch.

Trailer Rating: B

Review: Hopefully, interest in the film is derived from the trailer. This film plays like a fairly standard spy thriller, but with a cast that seems like it wants to make a great film, at least the potential is there and that may be all that gets it seen. If they don’t bother to look at the posters.
