Saw this recently and I loved it. Not a fan Russell Crowe (with the 'e'?) or Ben Affleck but both were superb in this intelligent thriller (is it a thriller?) - but not too hard to understand (I get lost sometimes in plots) and you can work out the twists just before they're revealed.

I think Helen Mirren tends to play 'Helen Mirren' in films as you look at her and think ohh there's Helen Mirren NOT oh look she's the hard bitten Editor with a heart.

A few laughs but the most unexpected one came from the actor who looks like a well nourished Kevin Spacey from the Orange mobile ads. He played a serious part but the audience just howled whenever he appeared on screen.

I thought the chemistry between Russell and Robin Penn was electric and when Russell is running from the bad guy and is hiding between parked cars you really felt the tension

Thoroughly recommended!
