Quotes

Conor Gallagher: You're driving a little fast. Ma'am, I still don't understand why you're pissed off at me. I let you drive didn't I?
Faith Mattis: It's not up to you to let me do anything. I made it clear I didn't want a bodyguard.
Conor Gallagher: You're going to have to take that up with my superiors, for now you are my responsibility, so slow down.
Faith Mattis: You're doing it again!
Conor Gallagher: What the hell is your problem! I mean... you're a piece of work.

Better than I thought it would be
3 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Ignition is not the best movie I've ever seen. On the other hand, it's not the worst movie I've ever seen either. The film's plot is at least plausible; particularly in today's atmosphere of terrorism and the military's ever growing power to `contain' it. One can imagine a rouge military officer or two taking matters into their own hands so as to `do their duty'.

As for the acting in the film, again, not the best, but not the worst. Bill Pullman plays `Conner Gallagher' the rough around the edges body guard, and Lena Olin plays `Faith Mattis' the federal judge Gallagher is assigned to protect. Both Pullman and Olin turn in descent performances. As for the rest of the cast, well, the acting goes steadily down hill form there. As with any B-movie like Ignition, checking your sense of reality at the door helps one enjoy the movie. However with some B-flicks, no amount of imagination can make the movie watchable. Ignition is certainly at least one cut above that kind of movie. And, in fact, it might even be a bit better than that.

Over all, if you don't have anything better to do, watch it. You might like it.
