| Storyline needed some work! 5/10
Review: This is a dramatic movie about a con man who kills a undercover agent and finds himself on the run from the law, with his wife and a tour guide who tries to help them get out of Athens. After a while he realises that the tour guide has fallen in love with his wife and after a dramatic chain of events, the tour guide and Mortensen, both find themselves on the run from the law. I found the movie to be very basic but full of tension throughout. The storyline wasn't overly complicated and the director didn't really show the depth of the characters. All the way through the movie, the characters are nervous and scared of getting caught so there wasn't anything else that interesting going on. The chemistry between the characters was good and believable but the storyline seemed a bit weak. The showdown at the end between the two main characters could have been better, but overall, it's an average movie that won't go down as a classic. Average!

Round-Up: Viggo Mortensen really doesn't take on that many projects, which is a shame because I rate him as an actor. I liked him in A History Of Violence and he was great in the Lord Of The Rings franchise, but he hasn't done that much since. Kirsten Dunst seems to act the same in all of her roles so I don't really class her as a versatile actress. In this movie, her style worked as the love interest of both main characters, but it would be good to see her in something that is out of her comfort zone. Oscars Isaac is starting to bloom in the latter part of his acting career. Starring as the main character in Inside Llewyn Davis and having cameos in the Bourne Legacy and Drive, I'm sure that he's happy with his port folio. All three actors put in good performances, but it's the storyline that really needed some work. 

Budget: N/A Worldwide Gross: $4million

I recommend this movie to people who are into there intense dramas about a tour guide trying to get a couple out Athens after a tragic murder. 5/10
