The short verdict on this film is easy to state: the excellent plot of Robert Harris' novel is let down by a humdrum screenplay and memorably bad directing. There is a mystery here, This film was released AFTER the first two films in the Bourne trilogy were released. The Bournes should have showed the producers of Archangel how to make this story into compelling entertainment. The culprit would seem to be director Jon Jones, the same man who recenly gave us 'The Great Fire', a TV series so cringingly bad that the cast visibly rushed through the final episode just to get away from the awfulness of the production. Jones really messes up Archangel, a film that could have been so much better.
