A Fresh Angle On Worn Out Thriller Plots
27 August 2000 | by (Haifa, Israel) – See all my reviews

I've seen comment about this film putting it down. I disagree. The film is built on good actors and good directorship. I agree that the film has weak spots in the script, but HEY what action film doesn't. I don't think I'll put the film in the TOP 10, but don't forget that there is only place for ten films in the TOP 10.

The plot isn't the smartest one, or a reliable one but it's fun, and actually has some shining smart points.

If you like action movies in general, you'll like this one for sure.!!
