I count this as a spy thriller. Does anyone else?

Everything is so expertly crafted in this. The editing and pacing are perfect from beginning to end. I loved the slow build up of tension throughout this movie. I loved the characters. I wanted everyone to get their happy ending and I didn't want the movie to end.

I’m kind of shocked that this is ranked so low on flickchart. It’s ranked in the top 50 on IMDb.
