One of several films that had its release date changed after the terrorist attacks on the USA of 11 September 2001. The film was originally set for release in November 2001, but was not released until June 2002. See more »
The car's cracked and broken windshield is undamaged in some shots as they are chased through the Czech countryside by the terrorists. See more »
I have to say, this movie caught me off guard. Aside from some incredible cinematic scenery (Prague is a beautiful city), I didn't expect this to be much of a movie. And while it may be difficult for some to believe that Chris Rock is CIA, I found this movie to address something serious and use Rock's natural humor to both lighten and relieve the audience. There has to be something said for how funny Chris Rock is, regardless of the setting. This movie is worth watching if you are in the mood for a funny movie with an action filled plot.
