It can't decide if it should be drama, thriller or action. First of there's no character development,it just sort of jump right into it with both feet.Which again doesn't really help the movie.Cause you are giving no reason to sympathize with any of the characters.It get told mostly in flashback,So it switches a lot between a debriefing in the present,and the past where all the action take place.
Some of the shooting and stunts are great in terms of effects,but nothing more.
The biggest problem it has, is story development and pace. The pace is way to slow to keep you interested,or for you to invest in any of the different agents. And it's full of illogical plot holes the size of grand canyon.Especially when Charlize's character is suppose to be super pro.Agent. They all act like amateurs,instead of the pro's they suppose to be.
But they seem to have done a great job of recreating Berlin,as it was during the cold war.Maybe that's where all the effort went,cause it sure didn't go into the storyline or the script.
A good portion of the bad guys,survive way to much.Even for Hollywood bad guys. It get to the point were it's simply too much for a serious movie,and not a comedy
