It's a TV movie,you should expect that there aren't going to be mind-blowing special effects.
And, to be honest, this movie is a bit weird in that the cops are relentlessly hunting "good bad guys." The "terrorists" are a freedom front that wants to destroy the means of production of certain companies for political reasons, but they try to make sure no one gets hurt (which, of course, backfires). So it's hard to "root for" the cops because the movie makes you sympathize with the terrorists and their families: ordinary people in almost every sense.
Arkin and Turturo provide good performances...Stephen Root (also of Newsradio) is very good in a much different role than people are used to seeing him in. Miguel Ferrer is decent.
