Silly. pointless exercise
22 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is laughably bad. In the scene in the restaurant Sean Connery and Brooke Adams are clearly at a loss for words. This scene is obviously unscripted and they are making up the dialog and not doing very well either! The entire picture falls apart in the last fifteen minutes with silly and uncoordinated action being filmed just to fill up the running time. I am sure that the actors (and this picture has a good cast) would like to forget that this flick was in their filmography. The dialog is silly, the action is senseless, the relationships unbelievable. The director has a lot to answer for. A waste of good film.
