Okay — I’m of two minds on this one. I love the look of the film straight off. I like the casting I’m seeing, as I like Kate Beckinsale and think Colin Farrell’s usually underrated and underused in the action movies he’s in. Just from the trailer, Farrell comes off much more the everyman who happens to be a super-spy than Arnie. Beckinsale’s hotter than Sharon Stone ever was. I like they lost the Mars and ancient air manufacturing crap in favor of something closer to the political thriller with the usual who the hell am I? stuff Dick wrote. I was less than impressed with the way they shot the reveal that he’s some kind of bad ass…

Don’t believe Farrel can act, and well? Four films: Phone BoothOndineTigerland, and In Bruges. I’d add the Fright Night remake, as well, as an honorable mention.
