Second time seeing this one, the other was when it was released on DVD some time ago, and thought it was an okay espionage-thriller, though the ending was on the laughable side, primarily the monologue one character does when any CIA agent, bent or not, would've shut their trap shut. Anyway, it was entertaining and actually if Disney (who I think owns the rights) wanted more adult-oriented content for Hulu, could make a series out of this, would be timely IMO. At this point, they could get Farrell to make a cameo... **3.25/5**
