Goofs

The story is supposed to take place in Bern, Switzerland, yet the cars are right hand drive, and all the traffic is driving on the left. This is because the movie was filmed in South Africa where they drive on the left, unlike in Switzerland where they drive on the right side. See more »

Good late night fun
21 February 2003 | by (Darmstadt, Germany) – See all my reviews

I've seen the film last night on German TV and I must say that I liked it. Sure it contains plot holes, where you could drive a tank through (like the silly hacker war), but in general it is great evening entertainment. Fast and action packed, it is like a rollercoaster drive that keeps you glued to the screen every minute. So all I can say is, grab a couple of beers, don't worry about the plot and acting; and just enjoy it.
