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 ...

Semi-hokey spy thriller
13 July 1999 | by (Vancouver, BC, Canada) – See all my reviews

I caught this one on late night tv, and only watched it because it was based here where I live, and filmed here. Semi-fictional story about Vancouver being neutral ground for the CIA and the KGB, it started out pretty well, but went downhill. The main characters being an american cop played by Sheen, and an RCMP detective played by Ontkean.

It was a relatively good movie, but I didn't rate it highly because it annoyed me. I recognised pretty near all the locations they filmed in, and when they turn a corner and end up on the other side of town, well, that just annoys me to no end. Another thing that annoyed me was the fact that the RCMP were working out of Vancouver, which has it's own police force. At any rate, it would have been better without the usual cliches and the female love interest that should have been left on the cutting room floor. But what's a spy flick without a chick?
