AN ACTION MOVIE,WITH A STORYLINE THAT'S BEEN DONE BEFORE.
23 March 2003 | by (ANAHEIM,CALIFORNIA) – See all my reviews

This movie was way too slow and predictable.I wish i could say more but i can't.If you enjoy action/adventure films,this is not one to see.I'd suggest you go see movies like;Behind Enemy Lines with Owen Wilson and Iron Eagle with Louis Gossett Jr.
