I wish the movie would've focused on their specialties a little more. Besides the guy who made bombs, Ciran Hinds didnt get 2 do much "cleaning", Daniel Craig seemed more like just a guy who decided 2 drive instead of a getaway driver. And I think they showed the other guy making 1 badge or something. Even w/ its faults tho I still loved the movie & it was certainly 1 of the best I saw this year.
