Predictable, boring and a waste of time
13 November 1998 | by See all my reviews

This movie had the makings of a great story but it was so obvious from the first half hour that Jonas was being set up. The characters are all stereotypical ... the wimpy accountant in glasses, the intense chief of security, the sadistic "bad" mercenary and the "unemotional" good guy. My advice ... watch paint dry.
