Superbly crafted film, with an extraordinarily effective musical score to accent emotion, flawed by an improbable and politically contrived (biased) plot. If only Polanski had put such effort into a believable film! Russia kills its citizens who are verbally critical of the Russian government, as Putin has done, but the USA makes heroes out of such people (even when they are involved in

Pretty good acting. Lame story line. Bush, Blair, Haliburton, and the CIA all torturing terrorists. Really? Is that the best you've got? I hate movies with a politcal slant. Hey, Roman! It's the Obama administration that's trying to get you extradited, not Bush.

Interesting movie. Polanski clearly tried for a Hitchcock-type suspense theme here, and nearly pulled it off. Very moodly and atmospheric. Not up to his best (I could watch Chinatown every week), but not a bad way to spend a couple of hours.

I rather enjoyed the mystery and suspense as an evening out. Like the TV s' Mission Impossible, I had to follow closley. Going to the movies is entertainment and when "ghost" finally took out the guests' "auto to use" it turned out to be a brand new BMW suv. Boy, I was sitting there wishing I was the one driving that baby! ...and he left it on a ferry boat!! Therefore, he got hit for it! Ha!

Don't listen to the critics. I kept waiting and waiting for this movie to become involving and it never did. A complete waste of money and time. Avoid like the plague.
