In the closing sequences of the movie, when Lasko is uncoupling the carriages, there is no sign of any cables, hoses, or other means of conveying the air-conditioning or alarm system between carriages. Since the plot depends heavily on those items, this is important. See more »
Well, the theme is a bit different! And Il Papa has a cameo! Must be the habits, but I did find myself thinking "I'm sure Cadfael wouldn't have done that" but I suppose that technology has moved on since his time.
I thought the action was pretty good. Some good stunts. How did they do that amazing explosion? The story held together well with no glaring plot holes.
I suppose that there really must be some hard-headed Vatican clerics who have to plan realistically for security and logistics behind the scenes of such events as Lourdes.
Some of the human interest bits that were pasted on to flesh out the hero were rather wince-worthy. And he was a little too cherubic for my liking. As was the boy. And folk demanding coffee from their underlings.
Overall, I thought it was a well acted, all-action thriller - just a shame that the cloying bits were not edited out.
