A covert counter-terrorist unit called Black Cell led by Gabriel Shear wants the money to help finance their war against international terrorism, but it's all locked away. Gabriel brings in convicted hacker Stanley Jobson to help him.
In order to foil an extortion plot, an FBI agent undergoes a facial transplant surgery and assumes the identity and physical appearance of a terrorist, but the plan turns from bad to worse when the same terrorist impersonates the FBI agent.
"Broken Arrow" is the term used to describe a nuclear device that has been lost. In this movie, two nuclear missiles are stolen by rogue US pilot Deakins, but hot on his trail is his co-pilot Hale and a Park Ranger, Terry. The action takes place in Utah's canyon country; a high stakes game of cat and mouse. Written by
On the train, Deakins starts the bomb counting down from 30:00, but when he clears it again there are more than 30 minutes left; the time appears to be 35:43. See more »

Shut that sonuvabitch down, now! This ain't what I signed on for. I'm not ready to die, not for you.
Everybody dies, Kelly. I'm as good a reason as any.

More utter junk from the meister of illogic, John Woo.
Tremendously stupid action film. Comicstrip-like characters and imbecilic dialogues. Laughably absurd action sequences, in some of which a mere female desert ranger is better skilled in fighting than James Bond and Conan the Barbarian combined. Travolta overplays his bad-guy role in a most ludicrous way. Just the way he holds a cigarette and smokes is annoying to watch; he can't even handle a cigarette without overacting. One moronic scene follows another in this stupendous mess. John Woo is an awful director; a mindless oaf who makes love to the camera, but wipes his behind with the scripts (much like De Palma, though unlike Woo, he has made some great mob pictures in-between all his rubbish thrillers). If action is all that Woo can do
and this seems to be the case - then he is a nothing director. Still,
if you think THIS is dumb, try watching "Face/Off". If you'd like to read my "biographies" of Travolta, Slater, and other Hollywood morons, contact me by e-mail.
