At the beginning of this movie, Milo "The Baker" Shakespeare (Damien Lewis) is listening to a meditation recording. On Life (2007), Lewis played an ex-con police officer who also listens to meditation recordings. See more »
The 3rd Generation Glock 17 handgun used by Milo (and later found by Eggs) is not "made almost entirely of plastic, making it undetectable by metal detectors" as claimed. It does have a polymer frame, but the slide (top portion), barrel and internals are all made of metal that would be easily detected by a metal detector. Also, while considerably quieter, a suppressed 9mm handgun is still much louder than depicted in most movies to include this one. See more »

I finally got to see this movie after trying to track it down for years. My problem was I searched on the film's UK name ("The Baker") and only just learned it was renamed for its US release. A quick search found that Amazon had it for rent, so I downloaded it for a plane ride home.
OK, maybe I had higher expectations after waiting all that time but I can only say this was a good movie and not a great one. It has several "issues" that I won't elaborate on as I still think it's worth watching.
The characters are interesting and the plot moves along, plus it had a lot of moments that made me smile but I will admit I never really laughed outright. It's that kind of film, enjoyable especially for Damian Lewis fans (I've always liked him since "Band of Brothers"). Kate Ashfiel does a good job, it took a little while to recognize her as Liz from "Shaun of the Dead" (she looks better with her short brunette hair) and Steve Speirs is great as Bryn. Several others put in outstanding performances that make it worth watching.
So, while not a "10," it's definitely a strong "8" and worth the time if you like movies of this genre.
