Annoying, boring, all qualifications bad accepted here !
15 May 2003 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see the set of this picture in Montreal(by the way, most of it are torn down these days, among these: the two gas stations became Medical Clinics, the viaduct on Mountain Street is thorn down and now has housing, and the climatic end scene shot on the old LaSalle Coke fields is now a shopping mall...). The story seems promising, but when I saw the end result... Disappointing !

A boring, badly acted movie, very unpredictable, full of sexist and racist overtones (even Arabs are trashed here !) and one of the most tiresome and annoying car pursuits ever shot...

I pity everyone who participated in this. Even Donald Sutherland has done better... And the others ???? Gone with the torn sets and buildings which served for this "running on empty" turkey...

Another sad attempt to pass Montreal as an American city... Noticeable cardboard English signs over French ones and the false "Health Spa" set next to the Gas Station and that stupid statue... Producers learned from then....

A movie to forget...
