We rented the DVD because of the interesting cast and concept and were really pleased to watch this fast-action spy thriller. This is not a particularly funny film (like Agent Cody Banks), but it is highly stylized, rather British, and clearly echoing James Bond films, but in a way that's entertaining for kids 7 or 8 and up, but particularly to 10 to 16 year olds. Some press reviews complained that there wasn't enough violence in it, but that seemed to be a good aspect to us. But with the constant rock score, the riveting editing, and intense stunts, it seemed entertaining enough. The lead actor is cute, so girls may like that, but he's not real emotional, but then neither is Bond and women love him. Mickey Rourke is weird. Bill Nighy is fantastic as the head spy. Alice Silverstone is kind of funny. Worth checking into.
