The struggle to watch this starts now.......
25 June 2001 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

Stop me if you've heard this....we have a machine capable of mass destruction. The trigger for this machine is simply to put on a set of headphones and "think mass destruction thoughts". The machine fits perfectly inside a small wooden box - just the right size for carry-on luggage.

I am a sucker for formula movies. Just love 'em. This movie is a mix of Cliffhanger, Air Force One, Broken Arrow, and last, but not least, The Long Kiss Goodnight - my all time favorite formula movie.

Speaking of The Long Kiss Goodnight, the entire climax of this film from the black 18-wheeler tanker to the explosion of the Canadian-US border is nearly an exact copy of that film. Frame for frame, it's a pitiful ripoff.

This movie doesn't deserve any stars at all.
