When a CIA agent is killed during a nuclear arms purchase, his partner Oakes, recruits his twin brother, Jake Hayes. Jake had no idea he had a twin brother, let alone that he worked for the CIA.

He has to rescue them and save New York city from an imminent nuclear terrorist act. Written by Mikey J. <mredding@ev1.net>

Goofs

Near the end of the film as the agents run down the stairs into Grand Central Station, Oakes shoves aside a man with an orange t-shirt, backpack, jeans and a wallet chain on his right hip. One minute later as they run down the train platform, the other agent shoves aside a man wearing a jacket and baseball cap over his orange t-shirt, jeans and wallet chain - the same guy. See more »

Not what I expected
5 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

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.
