A plot to assassinate the Vice President takes a wrong turn when the hit man, Sphinx, fails to show up and an unsuspecting cab driver gets caught in a tangled web of deception and betrayal. Written by
There's not much to recommend in this film; the performances are not up to par and the plot has back-flashes that unfold to enlighten us to the actual events that occurred. Add this to a murky film. A major flaw in my opinion is when a van shows up outside the plotter's nest and when it is discovered and checked out unsuccessfully, it is then ignored. For a group that is planning to assassinate the vice-president of the U.S. this is ridiculous. It's hard to identify with the thugs and we are expected to be interested in who the major spy is, when it is obvious from the start. The reason for this is that there is background revealed on this spy which indicates he must have an accent, and there is only one character with an accent in the film. It's a no-brainer from the get-go. Save your money and wait for this to turn up on the tube when you're desperate some night to watch any film. taproot.
