I saw this last night. If you didn't like Red Dragon or Hannibal, you probably won't like this. I took it as a story by itself and enjoyed it well enough. My wife thought the lead actor was sexy, if that helps anyone make a decision whether or not to see it.
I forget what season it was but I think it was early when Jack said to Liz about Kenneth: "In five years, we will either be working for him or dead at his hands". It was the one with the Casino on the set.
