The movie goes on with Jack proceeding trying to know who is trying to kill him and minding his last assignment.

According to reviews, Corbijn have done a good job bringing back the feel and look of 1970s American films in a European setting. The director also created a unique craft as the movie progresses into a quiet European thriller. There are no car explosions or planes exploding. It is peaceful but dangerous. The movie was quiet and consistently building tension. The film was released as rated R due to its nudity, violence and sexual content.

    Re: The American. I hate it when women have to show full frontal nudity (or else there are thousands of other women ready to take her place in that and in future films) and men just have to show their butt for a second. In Hollywood, only the men get to keep their dignity. Disgusting. Aside from the above, Corbijn is a good photographer but a lousy story-teller.
