Trivia

The text of the (real) Bandera file on the computer screen reads: "DEMIAN, BANDERA E You would think that a huge file like this would tell you something. Not so. I just open up my paint program and let my brain dribble out on the monitor. Bandera doesn't eve(n) exist, you know. He is just a character in a movie! I can't believe that I'm trying to write bio on a man who doesn't even exist. Now I have to write a second collumn. Oh, the tedium... This paragraph won't even have the benefit of my sense of humor. I'm so over having to write this blurb that I can't think of anything to say. This is a real bummer. PRESS ENTER FOR UPDATE" See more »

Goofs

Derek Leigh and his family live in a modest, 1950s ranch-style home. Later, we are shown an aerial view of the neighborhood and see nothing but huge, expensive new homes with tile roofs. See more »

Superman is a wimp. Jaguar is the new hero in town.
14 April 1999 | by (Mt. Olive, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Move over Superman and Batman, take a vacation. Maxwell Caulfield seemed to be in a slump after the lame No Escape, No Return, so he made a good decision. Dave DeCoteau does his finest with an action film filled with crazy camera angles, good dialogue, and uh, did I mention action? Plenty of it, too. I especially love those exploding-arrows. God this movie's so good I'm gonna stop writing this review to go watch it again.
