Overly ambitious low budget failure.
5 June 2004 | by (Leominster Mass USA) – See all my reviews

The film makers claim to be making a picture about terrorists attacking New York City. With the opening shot of the Twin Towers and the initial blowing up of a tourist sightseeing ferry, you might think you are in for a disturbing journey in this 1995 film. Instead you are given the equivalent of a group of third graders doing a production of Hamlet.

Viveca Lindfors appears for no more than a minute. Adam West for less then ten. As for the rest of the cast, they aren't even talented amateurs. (IMDb list Heather Graham in the cast, but she is not in the film's credits and does not appear.) Maybe their acting wouldn't be so bad, if there weren't so many of them or if the dialog was half way decent. There are at least fifty speaking parts. The dialog is simply lame. In fact the entire production is lame. The terrorists are not terrorist. The Germans demand money from the city to stop their bombings. That makes them extortionists.

Originally shot in 3D, you wonder what was in the film makers mind. Instead of spending their limited resources on a 100 different locations with an incredibly tortured script in 3D, they would have done better for themselves to hire a writer who knew dialog and actors who could act.
