Trivia

During filming in Ireland, the working title "Johnny Loves Suzie" was used so as not to attract the attention of any terrorist groups. However, it hardly could obscure the fact that armored vehicles and armed police and soldiers were featured in the film. See more »

Don't Get Fooled
24 October 1998 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

Don't get fooled by the seemingly interesting plot, the movie lacks any action whatsoever. The plot also turns out to lack any depth. In addition, the movie is very inconclusive. The only highlight of the movie was Timothy Dalton's Inspector Rennie. My vote: 1
