Goofs

In the intro sequence, the film says that oil was discovered in 1933 by accident and that the ARAMCO was founded as the first union between Saudi Arabia and the United States in 1938. In reality, the dates are switched. The company was founded by Chevron in 1933 and the same company later discovered oil in 1938. See more »

entertaining and more than an action flick
8 December 2007 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

The plot is twisting and the movie overall spectacular, although this Jason Bourne style story cannot be taken too seriously, in my opinion. The director, just to make the product more real and grab the attention, tries to add complexity and depth but the level reminds somehow the one of episodic TV. There are a few surprises, some forensic elements and the flick bears some resemblance to Syriana, that was a well done film. Action is undeniably spectacular but Jennifer Garner is not that believable and conceptual flaws are present in the plot. The finale is tear jerker but makes sense eventually, since it's not so far from reality..
