Storyline

Scuba-diver turned beach-bum Jonathan Slade is forced back into his previous milieu - the world of international espionage - in order to retrieve Black Boxes from an American jetliner that crashed under mysterious circumstances into the Black Sea. With his computer-hacker younger brother, Slade travels to a resort on the Russian-Turkish border to begin his quest. To his surprise and dismay, he's now joined by another secret agent, a beautiful but highly-skilled woman named Alex. As they begin diving in search of the downed jetliner, Slade and Alex begin to suspect they're being manipulated by higher-ups who may not be committed to American interests.

Action Flick Worth a View
30 March 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This may not be a bang on action flick, but the chemistry between the three leads, including the buffed Matt McColm and Amanda Pays works. Additionally, the genius brother, adds not only the needed "intelligence" but also the bits of comic relief. Not a 10, but definitely not a zero. Also found it interesting that Russia and the USA are referenced as "allies" quite a few times throughout the film. Also appreciated the time taken to study and accurately depict the major cities of the smaller, former "eastern block" countries.
