Goofs

After Danny puts Al-Red (who is going through the effects of drinking the explosive water) into the wheelchair, he pushes him into one of the stands where he explodes shortly after. If you pay close attention to the shadows on the stands and the background buildings, you can tell that the shots were obviously filmed at different times of the day, but spliced together.

Great movie, lots of action, unique twist on a tried and true formula!
9 November 2001 | by (Bakersfield, California) – See all my reviews

If you are a Pierce Brosnan fan, you must see this. This movie allows you to see Pierce Brosnan play a character that is not so James Bondian. The cast is great, and the story is the typical "hero saves the day" type. Unlike most terrorist type movies, the writers cleverly chose a weapon of destruction that is atypical and unique. I highly recommend this movie for action, good story, good characters, and entertainment in general. Not your run-of-the-mill action movie.
