Everyone's (especially the bad guys) clothes stay clean and neat even after spending the night in the wet forest without shelter, helicopter crash, etc. Frank's suit seems to stay pressed no matter what. See more »
This film is about the chase between cops, assassin's associates, assassin and an ex-cop.
The plot is very simple. Run, run and run. Apart from the constant displacement, there is really not much more to the film. As a result, there is no room to develop the characters. The dialog is weak. The only line that had some depth was when Chris exclaimed that he never thought his father listened to him.
The suspense looks too artificial. Why must they climb down the cliff in pouring rain? Is there really no alternative route? The editing was not tight enough to allow the suspense to sustain. Female nudity is put into the film in such a way that seems totally out of place and unnecessary.
In the end, Morgan Freeman's and John Cusack's characters developed respect and sympathy for each other. This could have been portrayed in more detail.
The only redeeming feature is the beautiful scenery. The valleys and waterfalls are breathtaking.
