It was refreshing to have a spy movie focussing on manipulation and trickery rather than techy gadgets and big guns. However the film is long and there are so many twists and turns it can be hard to keep up –by the end of this film I was starting to suspect I was the American mole! The final twist does create a satisfying ending though. It was also great to see a woman taking power and outsmarting everyone around her but never knowing what was genuine or not made it hard to like her character. Not as bad as I thought but a shorter version would have been better.
