While stars Eddie Murphy and Owen Wilson did some of their own stunts, stunt co-ordinator Brent Woolsey imported half a dozen crackerjack stuntmen from the U.S.A and another eighteen from Hungary, which presented him with another challenge, the language barrier. Instead of explaining stunts once or twice, it required five or six go-rounds, in order to make sure that everyone was on the same page and there were no mishaps. See more »

Actually, the movie itself is nothing that special, but it has some good stuff. From an artistic standpoint, there were some plot elements and character developments I didn't think were totally needed. They do however drive the story, which seemed to be their purpose, so I can accept them. The leads' combined talents and charisma have a lot to do with this movie's success. I found the acting to be sensational, the dialogue incredible and the director's abilities to be up to par and then some. It reminds me of some of those sombre Canadian films that were popular back in the 1990s. My final rating comes in at seven out of 10.
