Suspenseful, though it's not a typical twisty/action oriented spy flick. The three big roles (Ryan Phillipe, Chris Cooper, Laura Linney) all do well and seem well matched to their roles. I think I've seen all three in other movies before where they've seemed like weak actors, but this movie does them justice.
I kept waiting for the blow-out, the all-action finale where everything finally comes to a climax... but it wasn't that kind of movie. It was more of a really engaging story than an action flick. Nice.
