In one scene there's a sign stating that the train is crossing the border from Germany to Slovakia. Problem is, the German on the sign is not correct. It says "Achtung, Sie übergehen die Grenze Slowakei", which literally translates to "Caution, you are crossing the border Slovakia". Instead it should read "Achtung, Sie überqueren die Grenze zur Slowakei". Furthermore, the word "übergehen" is indeed a German word, but would not be used in this context. See more »

Bad. Very bad. Very very bad.
1 June 2004 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

The headline says it all.

From atrocious action scenes to pathetic sound, from worse than amateur special effects to pathetic editing this film just plain bad. No other way of putting it. It throws one over used cliché after another, along with bad acting, and horrendous direction.

It tries to be a big action film but with its sets and design, but it all looks so fake and ridiculous that you'll feel ripped off, even if you saw this movie for free.

The "story" is about the theft of a deadly virus, which was stored in some guy's desk and it looks like an over the counter pain medicine, by a lady thief who must be escorted to safety from a bunch of stupid terrorists. Van Damme is assigned to help her. Throw in some unnecessary family drama and you have this film in a nutshell. Avoid it. 1/10

Rated R: violence and profanity
