In the first scene on the train, pushing the button at the back of the car led to a hammer coming down and the pool table turning over; the second time when West tells Artemis to push the button, it is obvious that no hammer came down. The button should have done the same thing both times. See more »

29 December 1999 | by (roanoke, va) – See all my reviews

after being subjected to about the first 15 minutes of this hot-poker-in-the-eye of a movie, i just wanted to weep. THEY SPENT 170 MILLION DOLLARS ON THIS PIECE OF JUNK?!!!!! of all the quality unfilmed scripts floating around in hollywood, some higher up at warner brothers actually looked at this script and said "Hmmmm, this is fantastic, let's make it." my faith in american studios keeps dwindling quickly................
