All the Old Knives

Director: Janus Metz
Year Released: 2022
Rating: 0.5

The Central Intelligence Agency is notified by the hijacker of Turkish Airlines Flight 127 that he was assisted by a mole, so they ask Case Officer Henry Pelham (Chris Pine) to do some investigating, and that includes grilling his former boss Bill (Jonathan Pryce) and ex-girlfriend Celia (Thandiwe Newton).  For the most part it's spycraft done without much urgency, and then there's a heavy emphasis on the "romantic" side of the situation which feels more than a little forced (how many scenes did we need of them in bed to get the picture?).  All this is intended to set up a "twist" ending that isn't surprising ... but instead kind of baffling, making the entire thing feel like a waste of time.  Remember: trust no one, not even yourself.
