19 June 2004 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This has just been released on DVD in Australia in a quite reasonable transfer but without any extras and unfortunately an incomplete cast list. Filmed mostly in Auckland it has a good air of realism and the French in particular are portrayed with a scurrilous and arrogant demeanor as befits the event. Sam Neill is excellent as the Police Chief but Jon Voight is weak in an otherwise more than adequate cast. The coastal and sea photography is good and there only minimal fill shots. As terrorism becomes an increasing issue, this dramatization of a real event shows what lengths states will go to when they feel their legitimate interests are threatened. I enjoyed it as did several of my fiends who viewed it. Recommended.
