When McNeil, and Gemmel are retrieving the Virus from the storage area. It shows an exterior shot of Gemmel using what looks like a laser pointer to cut the hatch of the virus storage unit. It shows her cutting a huge circle that's wider then the hatch, and an interior shot of the laser cutting a circle into the storage container. Yet in the next shot the hatch opens as normal with no evidence of the storage unit having ever been cut into. See more »

Utter trash, cannot be taken seriously
29 July 2002 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

Seriously, this film is not. Steve Guttenburg is constantly forcing his tough-guy dialogue and then giving everyone the evil-eye all the time. He just wasn't believable, he seems like he's trying to be a badass and he sucks at it. I just remember him as the millionaire dad with the Olsen twins in It Takes, this is a BIG change. I rented this film for Sean Bean, and he dies (as usual). Only this time he didn't get impaled on a boat anchor (Patriot Games), smashed by a giant satellite dish (Goldeneye), or get run over by cows(The Field). He just got shot, real quick-like and civil, and that was all I got from this film that they didn't kill him off in an extremely grotesque and morbid way. How sad is that? I was only watching it for the 3 seconds that Sean was in it, and then the rest was rubbish. I actually tried to watch and understand the plot, but there really wasn't one. Seemed a little like Mission Impossible with the hole,"Oooooo! There's a mole! It's the leader of the group, and NO ONE EXPECTED IT! Let's trap him! Let's frame the underdog good-guy so we can get away with it!" Cliched and tired, this movie was a waste of time.
