    I caught an early showing of this over the weekend, and couldn’t find a single thing to disagree with either of you on. The movie lacks identity; it fails to meet the requirements for an action movie, and failed to stir my emotions enough to classify it as a drame-thriller.

    Not only was the final scene anti-climatic (granted the movie never developed to the point where I truly cared about any of the plots), but am I wrong in saying that it was completely pointless? Aren’t we given a run-down of that scene earlier in the film with an exchange between Fishburne and Winslet?
