Having heard countless times how the film had originally been written for Tom Cruise, but rewritten for Angelina Jolie after he turned it down, I was quite seen to see what the end result would be. The film was billed as a clever action film with some good twists and turns and having sat through...

ConsA bit unbelieveable

Sometimes you watch a movie that you had heard a little bit about but was not really sure what to expect from it but end up loving it and feeling rather glad that you saw it.
