Quotes

[about the second liquid bomb in the limo]
Frank: Mr. O' Neal, what do ya have for me?
Danny: For you? I don't have shit. Now get away from me. I don't want any terrorist mistaking us for friends.
Frank: Look, I know you guys like conspiracy theories, but it is possible he acted alone.
Danny: Unlikely. Especially if he's not talking. That means he's scared.
Frank: So what are you thinking?
Danny: I'm thinking I gotta take a piss. You wanna help me?
[frank nods]
Danny: No? That's good.

Kinda cool
6 September 1999 | by (Maine) – See all my reviews

While I was channel surfing one uneventful Tuesday Evening, I came upon this Pierce Brosnan actioner. Since their was really nothing else on, I decided to give it a try. I was not disappionted. Brosnan plays Danny O'Neal, an easily aggrivated FBI Bomb Squad agent who is assigned to protect a sleazy Senator (Ron Silver). The Senator is being threatened by a group of revenge driven terrorists who have invented a liqued explosive that caused people to explode when ingested. I know, that sound kinda cheesy, but the movie pulls it off nicely. The character tension and the invigorating action sequences make this a cool film.
