My Thoughts: If I didn't love James and Angie so much I would never have watched this movie. It's very exciting and has an interesting plotline but there were to many bizarre and impossible stunts. Not to spoil the ending for anyone but if you want a sunshine and roses ending, pick a different movie.

Ms. Communication

You know spies...

"I never run around in the bushes in a ski mask when I’m breaking in some place. Somebody catches you, what are you going to say? You want to look like a legitimate visitor until the very last minute. If you can’t look legit, confused works just as well. Maybe get a soda from the fridge or a yogurt. If you’re caught, you just act confused and apologize like crazy for taking the yogurt; nothing can be more innocent."
-Michael Westen (Burn Notice)
