2 stars - VERY Disappointing
Performances were good yet inconsequential. My biggest problem with the film was the (REALLY FLAT) ending, which tacked on "what happened to them" titles.


What was the point of having "what happened to..." this character or that character if these characters weren't real to begin with? I went to check to see if the story was true (which would have made me forgive the lead balloon ending) but surprise, it was all made up!

Good performances give it one star, and the siege on the embassy WAS a well done action sequence, giving it another star.
