It is a slap in the face of realization of what they can do to protect our security.
I am touched by the lives of these members of the clandestine agency because their lives are complicated.

That is why I went for description of canal because it made me feel that I should visit it someday

The description of the last war in JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit especially when the dwarves came out of the castle to join the war.

I agree on this. This scene totally surprised me. You can find friends in the most unexpected places and people you never imagine could help you are there for you.

I really enjoyed the Panama and learning about it was fun because back then I don't have any knowledge about Panama especially the canal :)

The ending. Especially if there's a twist in the story.

My favorite scene has to be when Max’s uptight associate Alex is covered in sand mite bites and is complaining about the working conditions. It just struck me as funny and how some of us just can’t adapt, or don’t want to.

Latest Review: The Expansion by Christoph Martin

My favorite part was near the end in the confrontation with Fisher and Roebuck. Roebuck asks why Fisher is trying to help him.

“If I hand you over to the authorities and they find you guilty,” she said, “the United States will never gain control of the Panama Canal again. We’ll never be trusted to step in, in any capacity at all. We’ll be the laughing stock of the world. But perhaps you didn’t think about that when you started playing your little war games?” Her tone was scathing. “Killing me gets you nothing,” she snapped. “In fact, I’m your best insurance. Now put the goddamn gun in the drawer!”

It's a cold scene that goes can go head to head with Paco's scene where he flat out says Max will be the fall guy. However, the scene with Fisher is so unexpected, and that makes it the best scene.
