Denzel Washington is such a fabulous actor, that it's always a pleasure to watch him in anything --- even in this ultra-violent, guns blazing, film, he excels. Despite the fact that his character is that of a rogue CIA agent, you've still got to love him, even if it appears he's a "bad guy." But, of course, when you finally find out why he went rogue, it makes sense. Then his marvelous co-star, Ryan Reynolds, is teriffic. They really make a dynamic duo. So, it's not light entertainment, but it's a really exciting movie. My only complaint is the blue/black color tone used to shoot every scene. I would still have known it was a 'dark' drama without suffering through the 'off' color that was annoying to watch.
