I don't know what's wrong with everyone, this one's great!!!
28 September 2000 | by (Cali) – See all my reviews

First off I'm a huge Andrew McCarthy fan and I usually like anything he puts out. This movie is a damn good movie. You got the premise of the perfect assassins which they show in the beginning why they are. Andrew plays a FBI agent who gets personally involved with the case and does good at it. Also having Robert Patrick along for the ride was great too, he played the cool guy con friend of Andrew. To top it off you also get Nick Mancuso to play the wacko behavorial scientist. All those guys were great and so was the chic in it but I don't remember her name. Plot is a lot better than most action movies and there's even a little comedy at times. This movie will make you feel for the people in it and therefore makes it more than just a shoot em up movie. When it does have action though the action scenes are grand. I don't know what's up with the other reviewers but trust me this is a great flic and if you like Andrew McCarthy then it's a must see.
