I decided to rent this, not expecting much since Hallmark stuff is usually kinda soft but what a surprise! Action and suspense. Patrick Swayze is back and kicks ass! It would be great to see him in a real action flick ie Tom Cruise style. I did not read the book but are they ever true to the novel?
The cast is great. The girl who plays Sonya (Annika Peterson) is both hot and smart. She runs the show which is impressive in a male dominated flick where the girl is usually just a sex object. This of course made my wife happy. Michael York, from Austen Powers, is slick. However, he could use some more gadgets. The gadgets were weak along with the special effects but the story is a good reflection of what is going on in the world today.
