Storyline

British soldiers force a recently captured IRA terrorist to cooperate with them and then assign him to go undercover with a gang of terrorists and prevent them from killing the U.S. President. But the spy isn't in long before he realizes that the first plot is but a ruse for a more sinister scheme that could result in trouble between China and Great Britain. Written by Ørnås

This movie becomes very tiring
25 October 2006 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

This movie gets very tiring to watch.

For the first 30 minutes or so, you expect the two hit men to go after each other right away.

It's just talk, talk talk...blah, blah, blah.

I fail to see the intense action I was looking for.

In fact I am writing this review as the film plays in the background and I could care less about it.

Too much politics. Too much boredom.

Too bad, because the box cover reads like it would be a kick ass movie.

Unless you are really inspired by slow moving political movies with over done Russian KGB agents and British spies, you might be a tad bit sleepy within 25 minutes or so.
