Did You Know?

Goofs

When Toffler and Renard arrive at the hotel (to find Fisk) Toffler's timer shows "8:14 timer3" (8hours 14minutes). After being hit over the head and kidnapped Toffler wakes up in a warehouse near the harbour and the timer shows "0:31 timer1". They get away at "0:23 timer1", cross the bridge at "0:05:53 timer3" and transfer him back into his own body at "0:00:46 timer3". Apart from the change of the timer number, was he really unconscious for 7hours 43 minutes? See more »

Once again the old adage is proved true...
5 February 2006 | by (Honolulu, Hawaii) – See all my reviews

You don't need a big budget to make a fantastic film.

Simply put: This is an entertaining and surprising movie with everything you could ask for - genuine suspense with believable plot twists, well-timed action, memorable comedy, and special effects that actually has a purpose beyond the "see-what-we-can-do" arrogance of many blockbuster productions.

I regularly contribute to IMDb's I Need To Know Board where many board favorites tend to be the memorable kitschy flicks. In the coming years

  • this will be one of them - I guarantee it. Not only is this a really


fun movie to idle away a 'popcorn video night', it's filled with unique visual hooks and interesting plot twists that tend to find their way into the collected memories of film fans.

While others have noted similarities to other well-known films of the genre - I urge you to watch this with a fresh mindset (pun intended).

This is probably one of the best Stephen Baldwin films from his hodge-podge career. Had he chosen to do more along these lines I suspect his limelight wouldn't have gotten so dusty that he'd end up as a B-rated 'star' for reality TV schlock. Doing solid, low budget, but profitable films is a career track that had Edward Herrimann and C. Thomas Howell working for decades while their "will-only-work-for-great-scripts/directors" driven counterparts have been forgotten or relegated to the world of early retirement.
