Fair but forgettable
27 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

It looks like a spy movie, it sounds like a spy movie, it's even titled like a spy movie, but "Countdown To Doomsday" is technically more of a crime / private eye tale: the hero is not a secret agent but a private detective hired by a rich man to look into the kidnapping of his daughter, who is also a reporter who was writing a series of articles trying to expose a drug smuggling ring operating in Caracas. When he goes there, he finds himself under constant attacks and is even framed for murder, so he teams up with a British narcotics agent and his beautiful (and I mean BEAUTIFUL) female partner, as it seems they're all after the same target. The cast does a pretty good job all around, and the action scenes are fairly entertaining, but overall there is little in this movie to stick in your mind, little to distinguish it from similar products of its era. ** out of 4.
