A truly terrible movie
21 March 2001 | by (Houston TX USA) – See all my reviews

No plot to speak of, lots of fight and chase scenes, and a very young Chris Noth doing a silly sex scene or two. Stay home and watch Law & Order or Sex & The City reruns on TV instead of wasting your valuable entertainment time on Jakarta.
