Jake Gyllenhaal and Mike Peña both put on inspired performances with lots of charm. They have a strong presence and their relationship is the heart of the movie, surprisingly intimate and affectionate. The action puts that through the wringer and I found myself on the on the edge of the seat, hoping that they make it through what they got themselves into.
Deep down this is a movie about life and honor. I am already looking forward to seeing it again.
And that last scene is brilliant.
