I did not like this movie, I found it boring.

Wasn't sure if I would like but actually was ok with me. Kept my interest the entire movie.

I found this movie very entertaining. No fast forward button needed. Good intricate plot. Well acted. I recommend.

I really liked this action packed fast paced drama with the sexy Idris Elba and the actor who I believed played Robb Stark in the Game of Thrones show.

Preposterous, contrived, empty-headed "thriller" -- don't waste your time,

Decent, if rather cliche, action/adventure movie with a rogue cia agent and redeemable thief. Nicely intriguing plot, but the lack of character development and rather weak ending spoils what would otherwise be a solid movie. Worth watching but it could have been better.

Lone wolf Briar and a genius pickpocket teamed up against some powerful bad guys in Paris made a good premise though with many plot holes that viewers had little chance to reflect on till the end; a film to watch without reading the description which gave away too much in mho. Good entertainment.

Let's be honest. If it hadn't been Idris Elba, I'd have given it only 4 1/2 stars. It looks like this might have been planned as a franchise, and I hope it becomes one. Lots of intrigue, lots of twists and turns, good chemistry between the "buddies" all bode well for a sequel or two. A great action movie--although much of the action is pick pocketing and slight of hand and a chase across Paris's rooftops. Elba makes a really good American!

Are you familiar with Deep Net cryptocurrency transactions?
-I don't bank online.
Right. You're a field guy. Your last op, Anbar, you were tasked surveillance, but you did a little more than that. Without clear visual evidence, you broke cover to take down six suspects who you alone had ascertained were carrying concealed explosives. I'm curious, are you saying you knew what they were carrying underneath their clothing before engaging?
-Oh, yeah. Like I could tell you, Tom... got tighty whities on, right?
But in the process, you exposed your key informant, Fatima Hamza. Two years building her trust, infiltrating the terror network, wasted.
-It was a calculated risk.
Really? Because your Baghdad CO describes you as reckless, insubordinate and irresponsible toward human assets. You recognise that description?
-No, but I recognize an asshole when I see one.
Four people died because of us.
-What can we do? There's only two of us.
No, there's a lot more.
