Did You Know?


Mel Gibson was initially interested in directing the film. He mentioned to his friend Richard Donner that it was a really great script. Then, when Gibson got heavily involved with Braveheart (1995), the project found its way to Donner. See more »


(At 1:13:05-1:16:00) Rath originally gets on the Seattle monorail at Westlake Center terminus, makes the exchange at the Seattle Center terminus and gets back on the monorail. He jumps off on to the track buttress by exiting the right side of the train (in correlation with the train's motion). This means that the train is going in the wrong direction as the buttress is on the left side when traveling from Seattle Center to Westlake Center. Further proof is the exterior shot of the monorail heading toward the Space Needle after it resumes operation. See more »

Definitely worth checking out!!!
21 April 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is action packed and definitely worth watching for any fan of action movies. I'm surprised at the low rating it's has so far on IMDb.

Two of my favorite actors are in the movie, Sylvester Stalone and Antonio Banderas. I just found out the movie is written by the same people who did the Matrix and I can see how that is so. Any movie with Banderas is usually good, and this is no exception. :)

If anyone likes sniper movies like Enemy at the Gates or Leon the Professional, this is definitely a movie worth checking out. You won't regret it.
