Summary: Exciting in places, but Franka's wasted.
Franka, so great in Run Lola Run, is merely background noise in this flick. Matt Damon does a decent job as an action/adventure star, but Mark Wahlberg does it much better. The movie is exciting and fun to watch much of the time, but gets tedious in places, as the plot seems rather absurd... the amnesia tack that is very popular these days (Memento, John Doe, etc.) and was overdone. I mean geez, is it really possible to remember everything about all those skills and not remember who he is? And we are supposed to believe this stone-cold killer has a conscience? Why?
