Enjoy, but don't expect much
2 June 1999 | by (Sioux City, IA) – See all my reviews

Overall, I thought this movie was OK. Seeing Linda Hamilton in an early role was fun, as was the premise. This movie came out during the height of "assassination" games where you try to "eliminate" someone you've been assigned to, without that person knowing you're after him/her. Of course, someone is looking to eliminate you, too.

If you want a fun movie to eat popcorn with, check this one out.
