At the beginning of the movie, there is a game of Monopoly being played. The building of houses / hotels breaks the general rules. You have to build evenly, you cannot build a hotel on the Strand, with only two houses on the Trafalgar Square for example. Also the property card for Old Kent Road sits in the bank tray, but a player must own it, as it has a Hotel (and incorrectly another house) on it. The rent for landing on Oxford Street with a hotel is 1275, not 1100 (thats for 4 houses) as called out in the game. See more »

Harrison Ford kicks some major butt in this film and proves again that he is the leading action star of his generation. Ford's action movie's never really seem silly, they always seem real. Alec Baldwin should have never let the character of Jack Ryan go, because Ford now personifies the super agent. Nice direction from Phillip Noyce and a great score from James Horner make this a very good action film.
