Goofs

When a close up of the rope is shown when Mason is letting "Elvis" down the dam it is blackened and sloppily wrapped quite different from the store; a moment later it shows Mason holding the rope up and, like at the store, it is clean and neatly wrapped. See more »

One of the better action films I have seen in some time.
28 August 1999 | by (Arnprior, Ontario) – See all my reviews

Good action flick about regular guys turned defenders of the American people. Cuba Gooding is great as an excitable type, while Skeet Ulrich is the cool one. Once the story is set up, the action is non stop with a lot of "Edge of your seat" scenes. Cuba & Skeet deliver some good comedy lines to take a bit of the edge off the intensity of this film. Their relationship as friends grows throughout the movie so it gives you a good feeling & brings some believability to how they react to each other in tough situations. If you like fast, hard hitting action with a bit of humor thrown in, this movie is for you!
