We gave it a B-

A shifty financial institution mismanaging its funds? Sounds like a page from our current economic situation. In this globe-trotting thriller, Interpol Agent Louis Salinger (Clive Owen) and Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Eleanor Whitman (Naomi Watts) uncover abhorrent misdeeds committed by one of the world’s largest banks. The two must work outside the realm of the justice system to bring down the terrorist-funding institution — before it brings them down.
