In the film's source novel, the central setting was Berlin, Germany, but Pierce Brosnan stated that it was too expensive to film there, so the key shooting locale was changed to Belgrade, Serbia. See more »

The last film I saw Brosnan in - Love Punch - was almost as bad as Mama Mia. What was he thinking? Apart from Daniel Craig, I like him as the best 007. So, having read some of the reviews on IMDb I had very low expectations.
However, this is a good film if you like Brosnan as the secret agent. I don't understand why some reviewers don't get the story. It's pretty simple to follow even though the end is half expected. He is gritty enough (just) with the couple of scenes of him drinking not quite making the cut. The action scenes were quite good and Olga Kurylenko added the eye candy.
So, I disagree with the haters. This is definitely worth a watch.
