Quotes

John Hyde: [narrating] Here's a fax for your file. Vancouver is a major staging area for spies operating in North America. The city is nicknamed "Cold Front" by the Reds. It's the front line between the U.S. and Russia. The CIA and the KGB cut deals and Canadians, believe it or not, look the other way, as long as there's no trouble. The drug bust started in Los Angeles, ended in Vancouver. And they stuck me here in Canada for another week, on some "Hands Across the Border" bullshit. So the Mounties put me ...

** out of *****
12 December 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I Picked this movie up for £1.50 and I'd never heard of it and considering the lack of comments nobody else has either.

It's supposed to be an Action Thriller - it fails on both.

Martin Sheen stars as a Ameican Cop who goes to Vancouver,Canada to work with the Royal Mounted Canadian Police and ends up partnered with Canadian Cop Michael Ontkean, a couple of murders follow- something to do with the KGB or CIA or something, But very little is actually explained in this film, you end up scratching your head and asking yourself 'who's that?' or 'what did he do that for?'.

I just about managed to make it through the 90 minutes of this cheap (it's all filmed in about 1 square mile) pretty rubbish movie. It's slow,Boring and nothing of any interest happens.

Sure- I've seen worse, but let's just say it's not a Film i'll be in a rush to see again

5/10
