Weak
19 January 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

A so-called "spy spoof" that has James Belushi playing Agent Royce, who is called out of duty after the Cold War and sent on a new mission by his boss, played by Peter Boyle (who was in another James Belushi movie called "Red Heat," also starring Arnold Schwarzenegger).

Not very funny, and as much as I enjoy watching James Belushi do his thing in comedies, he doesn't work as a leading man in a spy caper. Watching him tote a gun and rescue hostages is sort of sad.

This is not very funny and is a poor imitation of "True Lies," released the same year.
