Goofs

The pistol used to shoot Rodney is a Webley Mk IV chambered in .38 S&W, one of the most anemic service rounds ever foisted on an unwilling army (by the British). There is absolutely no way it would cause a full-grown man to fly back fifteen feet as is depicted in this film. (There are documented cases of it failing to penetrate military greatcoats at even closer ranges.) See more »

So many flaws
21 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Do not waste your money. This remake is extremely flawed, and my child could have done a better editing job. For the first 10 minutes, I thought it was fantastic. But, once the plane wrecked and came to a complete stop, so did the movie. The other IMDb threads cover the flaws, so I won't repeat. Rcristia's entry contains just a sampling of the many annoyances and distractions.

If I were forced at gunpoint to find something positive about the movie, it would be Giovanni Ribisi. Excellent, funny, worth a $1 video rental just to see him.

On the other hand, Dennis Quaid, who I really enjoyed in Frequency, Far from Home, and The Rookie, sucked. Especially during the flight in the sand storm, when I would think a pilot would be at least a little apprehensive, he delivered his lines as though he were taking a leisurely Sunday drive in the country.
