Extremely boring
I was not expecting combat action, or a whodunit type thriller, but I was totally disappointed with the slow pace and the total lack of suspense.

The dialog was not witty or even interesting. The actors are first class, but are wasted. Other reviewers have said that Kate Blanchett steals the show, but there is nothing to steal, and she hardly is in the movie, and when she does appear, we are left with a 'is that all?' feeling. Other characters play their parts as though they were visitors in the set.

There were two or three instances where I was tricked into thinking that something exciting was going to happen, but the subject ended abruptly and the boring and easily anticipated theme was back.

I wanted to like the movie so badly that I was successful in staying awake for about 45 minutes, but then was in and out until the last 20 minutes, where the pace picked up from snail to turtle pace.
