Ben Affleck cooks the books on this plot-heavy ‘R’ rated thriller and nearly pulls it out of the red. Unfortunately, a deflating third act, a predictable twist and an almost unnecessary subplot keep this one from balancing out.
Daniel Craig’s overlong and overblown fourth outing as 007 will more than likely be his last.
