I agree, this movie deserves a GREEN. Because even though I wouldn't rave over it, it more than delivers on its premise (and promise). And yes - the plot twist was great and best of all, COMPLETELY LOGICAL. (Thank u screenwriters!) I just didn't like the very end -- which I won't spoil. But they could have saved it for the inevitable sequel.

I thought at times that James McAvoy was weird casting, but right when I'd start to question it, he would redeem himself in some way. (I always like him, it was just strange sometimes when he was in assassin mode since he's so little, I guess.)

This movie is completely entertaining though -- more good summer-escapist fun.
