It all adds up..By Gordon Vader Review Master (144 reviews) from Emerald City, oz , 01 Jul 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]
[Highly rated reviewer]A great little spy thriller similar to Safe House and no less gripping. Cusack is convincing as the tired Agent and the plot has enough twists to satisfy the most hardened conspiracy nut...Plus as the film states you can still hear these number stations broadcasting on random frequencies which just adds to the suspense...

I watched it twice, excellent film.By Smartstring (37 reviews) , 10 Dec 2013A really good film with a good strong storyline only one continuity slip and you will probably miss it. Cusack at his best,I have not seen him so good in any other of his films Well worth a watch.
Easy to wacthBy Stedmund (4 reviews) , 02 Dec 2013Luckily I am big fan of Cusack, who I think carries this film. Standard shady government thriller. Pretty well acted all around.
Muttering unintelligible dialogue and no subtitlesBy LikesFrenchFilms (66 reviews) , 26 Nov 2013It's hard to review a film when the actors mutter or are drowned out by background noise but there are no sub-titles. Mutter, mutter, mutter - gunshot! - mutter - scream - punch - mutter.
Here's some different numbers.......By IrmscherMatt (29 reviews) , 17 Nov 2013Not an especially conventional thriller, with lots that is left unexplained. However, the troubled agent who is ostensibly recuperating (Cusack), is very well portrayed - tired, troubled and never able to let go of his killer's training. I enjoyed the story, the fact that it is based in Suffolk (it really is in the middle of nowhere!)and that is not typical (after the start of the film at any rate) in its portrayal of violence. I liked Cusack's character and so does his boss ('we were never here'). He does what he is good at and can do so with a clear conscience in protecting his Civilian co-worker. The ending is sudden and rather unfinished in my opinion, but I like that I can imagine what the two do next. Worth a go, an unusual film, and highly enjoyable .
Phone's for You, Mr Cusack.By CoolView (4 reviews) , 11 Nov 2013Good little thriller, not a patch on the more recent Denzel Washington/Ryan Reynolds actionfest, still in it's own way it has its own charms. Well paced and tautly directed, the script is fraught with 'foreshadowing', however, when the punch is thrown there is a twist and an unforeseen consequences result. Well worth the watch, if you're John Cusack fan it isn't his best role, although he is believable with an excellent supporting cast. Nice that it is located in England. Good direction, continuity, and sets.
