Storyline

When a bomb, delivered to a law firm's skyscraper office, kills 15 night crew and senior partner Anne Harrington, irreverent postal inspector Beau Stoddard competently traces it. Officially he's just FBI liaison. Nominee director of Domestic Security Robert Brickland, Beau's hated ex-boss at bomb squad and FBI, grudgingly lets him collaborate with ex-partner Jane Dreyer. Soon after U.S. Attorney Fred Goldenberg is also bombed. Anonymous letters suggests the link is drug hood James Grimes, but he maintains his innocence while dying in a bloody arrest. Beau pushes on, fearing a dirtier plot. Written by KGF Vissers

It's Amazing...
17 September 2003 | by (www.nixflix.com) – See all my reviews

...what they can do nowadays just by buying up stock footages of exploding buildings, houses, and cars and inserting them into various points of your movie. Of course that means you have to "guide" your screenplay around the available stock footages, such as the whole hockey stadium sequence from the Jean-Claude van Damme movie SUDDEN DEATH (of course I'm guessing here, since I don't quite remember that particular movie, only parts of it).

It's amusing to note how the previous reviewer pointed out that he was surprised by the production values of DETONATOR. I don't mean to laugh at the reviewer, because he obviously had no clue.

DETONATOR, as a film, is mindless entertainment. The script is badly cliched, and you could see the "genius quip" each character is about to say oh, about a mile ahead of when they were planning on saying it. And no, not a single one of them is original. Like the movie itself, DETONATOR is a mishmash of stock footages and cliches from 1000s of other movies that's come before it.

Nothing original, but it's enjoyable mindless entertainment.

4 out of 10
