The three attack helicopters used by the United States Air Force to retrieve the nuclear warheads are slightly modified HH65 Helicopters, some of which were armed with twin 70mm Missile Pods. They are commonly used by Police forces and the US Coast Guard. See more »
Near the end of the Town Square scene in Vienna, Col. Devoe spins the rear wheels of the Mercedes, one of which has a flat tire and is backed up to a curb, which causes sparks to land on some spilled fuel. This wouldn't happen because the Mercedes had aluminum wheels and aluminum doesn't make sparks. Not to mention that, if Dimitri Vertikoff was making his Mercedes into a rolling tank with bullet-proof glass and the other features he mentioned, he would've had run-flat tires installed. See more »

A distraught Bosnian piano teacher named Dusan Gavric (Marcel Iures), whose wife and daughter had been shot down before his eyes by Bosnian Muslim snipers in war-divided Sarajevo, intends to ignite a stolen nuclear bomb around the U.N. building in New York in revenge for that atrocity
Nuclear weapons specialist Dr. Julia Kelly (Nicole Kidman) and US Special Forces Colonel Thomas Devoe (George Clooney) try to stop the psycho...
Clooney, convinced that United States educated half the world's terrorists, plays a talented soldier who takes great liberties to get what he wants including heavy bribes and savage beatings With that cool, suave and dashing look that makes women swoon, Clooney demonstrates great sense of humor with his performance, and looks pleasantly cold as hell during high action sequences His unexpected reactions get on Kidman's nerves so easily
Kidman looks lovely as the anguished scientist who wants to save the world, struggling tightly against her self-doubt
Mimi Leder definitely proves that she's a commanding presence behind the camera She shows how to move more effectively the camera creating tension throughout the hijacking of the warheads, Vienna's exciting car chase, the flight of the three US Air Force helicopters ordered to return to Turkish airspace, the truckload of the bad guys hanging over a cliff, and the tracking of the missing warhead on Manhattan's crowded streets
The music is great... It follows the action well and elevates the dramatic suspense throughout the show...
