Did You Know?


While attempting to disarm the bomb on the tram, the ATF agent says to measure the current through a transistor. A multimeter is used, and the measurement was stated to be "40 ohms". Current can be measured by a simple multimeter only by connecting it in series with the circuit to be measured, which was not done. Furthermore, current is measured in amps. Ohms is a measure of resistance, a reading which cannot be made on an energized circuit. See more »

Adequate fare, but you've seen it before (but why Greenmail?)
14 July 2002 | by (Chantilly, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Greenmail is an economic term having to do with corporate takeovers. This is a story about ecological activism gone awry. During a night time mission for water samples explosions occur, and someone dies. The ATF is called in and the story proceeds. The whole thing is quite predictable, and you know what is going on from fairly early. There is frequent (probably fewer than 400 times) referral to events "15 years ago" (when Stephen Baldwin was in diapers, I think,) although they have only passing importance to the story line. Since there are bombs, there is plenty of the usual dithering about wires and the normal Hollywood detachment from the real world. For example, why is there always such a ready supply of Semtex and C4? On the other hand, there is one really great line, and when someone takes a torso shot wearing body armor, it HURTS. Amazing. In general, not bad, not good. Baldwin is OK, Tom Skerrit can do it in his sleep but D.B. Sweeney could have been replaced by a rock and you wouldn't notice.
