Storyline

Gene Watson is a public accountant who arrives on a train at Union Station in Los Angeles, accompanied by his 6-year-old daughter Lynn. Because of his ordinary looks, he is approached by a pair of sinister people named Smith and Jones. Pretending to be cops, Smith and Jones kidnap Lynn and confront Gene with a simple choice -- kill California governor Eleanor Grant in 90 minutes or less, or Lynn will die. Watson is given a gun, six bullets, and a name tag, and he is told to go to the Westin Bonaventure Hotel and kill Eleanor, who is giving an afternoon speech. While Jones is watching Lynn in a van, Smith watches Watson in order to prevent Watson from alerting the authorities. Watson must quickly find some way to get himself and Lynn out of this seemingly impossible situation. Written by Todd Baldridge

Trivia

One of the most remarkable film sequences involved one seamless take during which Johnny Depp and Christopher Walken board a glass-walled elevator and ride 35 floors to the top of L.A.'s Bonaventure hotel. Crammed into the confines of the elevator with the actors were, director John Badham, cinematographer Roy H. Wagner, focus-puller Todd Slyapich, sound mixer Willie D. Burton, boom operator Marvin E. Lewis and script supervisor Barbara Thaxton. Given the fact that the elevator was glass from top to bottom, was lit by 8 Kino Flo lamps, ensuring that camera and crew reflections were not captured on film was quite an exercise in and of itself.

Good movie.
3 April 2000 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a pretty good movie. A suspenseful movie, Hitchcockian in that an innocent man gets involved in a deadly plot. An intriguing plot that had me thinking what I would do in the situation. Christopher Walken was, as usual, creepy and Johnny Depp was believable. The rest of the cast was very competent. I'd advise renting it. Not a special effects extravaganza but a nicely written fast moving movie.
