I read the reviews here before I went to see the movie and it seems like most of the older reviews were negative and the more recent ones were more positive. I was misled by the more favorable reviews into somehow thinking that this was an exciting and on the edge of your seat drama. It was not.

As others have mentioned. The pacing of the first two thirds of the movie is ponderous. Sure, a backstory is necessary, but this was absurd. Also, other reviewers have mentioned the handheld photography and and I'm not knowledgeable regarding that sort of thing but it was definitely noticeable that the photography was inferior, and it was distracting, and made it harder to get immersed in the movie.

The pace of the last half hour was much faster and perhaps saved the movie for anyone that was still awake.

I initially got my wife to go by telling her this was going sorta be like "Homeland". What a lie. Any episode of Homeland, over its entire 7 seasons, is much more exciting, and made much better than this movie.

I did think that Rosamund Pike was outstanding, and that Jon Hamm gave a good performance, but the movie overall was disappointing, and I had to apologize to the family for my poor choice.
