What can I say? I like Richard Gere. He's the man. And with all pistons fired he is phenomenal on screen. This movie was a well crafted story. Definite proof that we don't need to blow up half a planet to keep your audience's interest. From opening to closing you get the clear feeling that something is going to go very wrong here. The thriller element is clearly there. The characters smart, and the decisions made along the way a perfect balance between surprise and predictability. Even you plot geniuses out there can feel smart following along. I particularly loved the ending. It went somewhere I didn't expect it to go. The definition of the true monetary American hero. By the way, what is an Applebee's?... Classic.
