The characters in the film are created by tom clancy, Kenneth branagh directed himself in a negative role, He fails to deliver what he promised in trailer. Editing is okay. cinematography is amazing. screenplay is quite poor. production values are good.

chris pine did a decent job as ryan but his character has too many flaws. Keira Knightley hasn’t got much screen space to share with lead actors even though she justified her role. Kenneth’s role is weak but he tried his best. kevin coster did a fantastic job. the rest of the cast is okay in their respective roles.

Better to skip this movie. one time watchable for action genre lovers.
