In 1988, a group people were murdered. Paul (Gere) and Ben (Grace) tries to resolve a case involving a Russian operative. The identity of Cassius was obvious from the beginning. Manner of resolving was clever and soundtrack was thrilling. Car chase was exciting, fight scenes enticing and the final scenes were the best, if it only had more mystery to Gere’s character instead of placing too much clues.
