Did You Know?


Jack tells Sydney he's giving her an H&K P11 5-shot underwater dart pistol, but the weapon he holds up is a normal semi-automatic pistol with a suppressor attached to the barrel, looking nothing like a real P11. See more »


Michael Vaughn: Thanks for getting back to me so soon. Uh, the thing is, I think I have a problem.
Doctor Nicholas: I know you're worried, but we ran every available diagnostic test for viral infections. Everything that could be related to your exposure to the fluid inside the Rambaldi device. They all came back negative.

Twists and turns
26 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

Vaughn has been infected by the lethal virus he was exposed to at the Taipei lab, and will die within a few days unless the antidote is given to him. Sydney learns from her mother that the antidote can be found at an Estonian military facility, but right after getting it, Sydney is captured by Sark and forced to make a deal with him: he'll let her leave and later give her what she came for; she'll somehow render Sloane unconscious and deliver him to Sark, who announces that he plans to kill him. That presents her with a moral dilemma, but she doesn't take too long to make up her mind: if Vaughn is to be saved, Sloane must go. However, there are still more twists and turns on the road ahead, including a new plot development that certainly changes a lot in the game. The scenes between Irina and Vaughn are particularly well written and acted; on the other hand, I can't say that Sydney as a Japanese masseuse is one of her most convincing disguises. *** out of 4.
