Unlike their characters, George Clooney and Nicole Kidman got along very well on and off the set. In fact, Clooney, a notorious prankster, never pulled a prank on Kidman, out of respect. See more »
During the car chase, DeVoe rolls down the driver's window of the armored, bullet-proof Mercedes. However, bullet-proof windows cannot be rolled down. They are built to remain up at all times to ensure their protection remains in place. See more »

There is nothing in "The Peacemaker" that is new or something we
haven't seen done before in an action movie. Yet the movie serves its
purpose; to bring some mindless entertainment with some nicely done
Nicole Kidman in a main part of an action movie? Yes, Nicole Kidman in
the main part of an action movie and who would have ever known, she is
actually believable in her part but her acting is just a bit too
standard and boring but yet like I said before, her characters remains
believable. Thumbs up for that! But the best roles are played by George
Clooney and Armin Mueller-Stahl, who is always great in a movie.
The movie's opening is really a memorable one and is one of the very
best action movie openings I have ever seen along with "The Rock",
which was made one year earlier. After that the movie looses some of
it's power and pace and we begin losing interest until the next action
sequence occurs. Yes, it truly are the action sequences that are the
highlights of the movie and make this movie a watchable one.
The visual style of the movie is also what makes this movie above
average. The cinematography by Dietrich Lohmann gives the movie a cool
action movie feeling. Dietrich Lohmann unfortunately died not much
later during or shortly after completing the movie "Deep Impact".
The music by Hans Zimmer is most excellent. Zimmer and co really set up
some new standards for action movie soundtracks in the nineties.
Standard action movie but well executed!
