A spy thriller about legendary ex-CIA agent (Pierce Brosnan) emerges from his retirement in Switzerland to protect a witness, and his mission becomes a cat-and-mouse game with his former protégé David Mason (Luke Bracey). Based on the novel There are no Spies by Bill Granger. This CIA Agent, Peter Devereaux, is tasked with watching after Alice Fournier (Olga Kurylenko) – a witness who some very powerful people would rather see silenced.
“The movie fails to develop the most important people in Devereaux’s life as characters, even obliquely, until the movie needs to terrorize or kill them to jack up suspense and sympathy. Despite occasional humanizing moments… the movie treats everyone as cannon fodder.” -Matt Zoller Seitz –Roger Ebert.com
