      I wasn't going to bother with this due to the reviews, but as it gets top marks (almost) for picture and sound i think i will be buying this.

      It's not a great movie but the action is good and it looks and sounds superb.

      Good trailer but TRULY awful film.

      Script was a real mess and seems ill-thought out and everyone looks like they'd either wandered on to the wrong set or they're on heavy amounts prescription drugs.

      It was done brilliantly with Blood Diamond which I assume is where the people got their idea from and decided to throw in a bit of Bourne, Bond and dodgy European accents.

      Is anyone else have problems loading the disc? In my Sony BDP-S7200 it will not load past the trailers, I'm having to switch off at the mains and back on just to get the disc out. The same thing has happened today with my replacement from Amazon. I checked firmware updates in case but there are none.

      It did manage to load in my PS3 after hanging for a few seconds but the console is noisy. Otherwise I'd try an import, however I'm not sure if dvdworldusa are trading at the moment, there is no movement on my pre/orders and no reply or working contact link at the moment.

      I thought it wasn't a terrible film, just not very repeat worthy due to a severe lack of empathy/likeability for Penn's character.

      Idris Elba must have a seriously good agent to be second billed even though a trip out to replenish your glass and another for a toilet break could nearly mean you miss his appearance completely :)
