Not the best, but entertaining.
11 July 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

The plot for this film contains a search for stolen nuclear substances or something around there that are hidden in the jungle. This provides an excuse to blow stuff up. Actually, this movie is entertaining in a mindless sort of way. Billy Zane isn't bad as the hero, and the rest of the acting wasn't shabby. I do kind of wish that the plot was a little better, though. Action fans will love it.
