Goofs

Although the film is supposedly set in a flooded London, all the footage shot along the Thames, shows the water levels at a perfectly normal level. This is most evident when we see the Thames flood barrier, which is always shown open. (The barrier was built in the early 80's to protect many London boroughs from rising sea levels) See more »

Marvelous character development
15 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dick Durkin (Neil Duncan) is the reason to watch 'Split Second'. Dick's plenty competent as the newly assigned partner of Harley Stone (Rutger Hauer) as the beginning unfolds, but he clearly questions whether Harley is fully sane.

However, as his character evolves along with the evidence of the case he's on, and especially in the moments immediately after the conversion of his partnership with Harley, the presentation of 'Dick' by Duncan is pure fun just to watch.

Decent action, decent suspense, plus a portion of horror and sci-fi. But watch it for Dick Durkin.
