Lazy script partly compensated by plenty of action.
Saw this on tv last night, and it just about held my interest. Berenger and Weller are wasted though and seemed to be going through the motions, but Daryl Hannah's role was the most intriguing and she had some decent dialogue.
As siege films go it's not one of the best, too many questions and not enough answers as usual (why do so many so-called professional scriptwriters have a problem resolving questions that an amateur like me could of spotted?), but if you come across it on a dull night, there's plenty of action that should keep you awake.
