Mobius (2013/Lionsgate Blu-ray)

Picture: B Sound: A- Extras: B Film: C+

Both the CIA and the Russian FSB are after an international money laundering company. Alice (Cecile de France) is a deep cover agent working as an accountant for the syndicate, her job is to get close to the inner circle of leaders and gather proof of their money laundering operations, but when she encounters the Russian FSB agent (Jean Dujardin) and fall in love with him, her affair with both syndicate and Russian secret service member might blow not only her cover and endanger the entire operation in Eric Rochant's Mobius (2013).

Alice (who caused a big financial screw up to begin with) is an agent sent by the CIA to infiltrate the syndicate, she is good with numbers she helps make dirty money into clean money, and seduces the head of the syndicate. What she didn't expect was to fall in love with her Russian counterpart, unable to keep away and hands off from each other, they not only must hide their identities, but their secret affair from their own intelligent agencies. When the Syndicate becomes suspicious of Alice's new lover, they risk not only their lives, but everyone else in the secret service for the sake their of love.

The greatest taboo any spy can make is to fall in love, especially with the other side. And while a secret service organization can never order a spy to use sex to accomplish the mission, they turn a blind eye when it works, but will cut the spy loose when it puts the mission at risk. In the world of spies, you can never trust anyone... specially the one you sleep with. Tim Roth also stars.

The 1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High Definition image is mixed and sometimes underwhelming, while the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix is very well recorded, mixed and presented throughout. Extras include making of the film, interviews and trailer gallery.
