Simply awful
10 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This was one of the worst movies I had the displeasure to watch.

This movie is full of annoying artifacts used to "construct" the plot.

For example, when the villain(s) is(are) knocked out, they are never immobilized, handed over to police or special services or killed. No, they are left to run after the "good guys", in order to generate new scenes of cat-n-mouse. Unfortunately, this technique has been so much abused in this movie, that at a certain point I started to root for the villains. Then I just stopped watching the movie and thought I'd spend my time with something more interesting.

I later returned, to see the last 5 minutes of the movie, and I remained feeling miserable and angry that a few good ideas have been wasted.
