Monumental miscast
21 April 2005 | by (north dakota) – See all my reviews

Teri Polo has to be the least convincing assassin that I have ever seen in a movie. Her performance was beyond terrible. Stick to comedies Teri, action isn't your calling.

Teri portrays Hollywood's favorite cliché, the assassin with a heart of gold, and finds herself fleeing for her life with a nerdy accountant who is smitten with her. The rest of the cast, vets like Robert Davi, Miguel Sandoval and Tia Carrere, just took up scenery and their characters had little substance.

As far as acting goes, Jeff Fahey does the best job here. I would urge you to avoid it, unless you just have to see Teri Polo naked.
