Jerry Shaw is an amiable slacker with an over-achieving twin brother. After his twin dies in an accident, strange things happen to Jerry at a dizzying pace: a fortune shows up in his bank account, weapons are delivered to his flat, and a voice on his cell phone tells him the police are on their way. Jerry follows the voice's instructions, and soon he and a woman he's never met are racing through the city, on to a plane, and eventually to the Pentagon, chased by the FBI. She is Rachel Holloman, a single mom; the voice has threatened her son's death if she doesn't cooperate. The voice seems to know everything. Who is behind it, what is being planned, and why Jerry and Rachel? Written by

When Jerry Shaw finds several passports in his room, one of them is the USSR passport. While the Soviet Union did collapse in 1991, Soviet passports were valid for 10 years and could be validated for another term at consulates without being changed. A passport issued in 1990 would be valid to be extended until 2020. You get a new passport when you actually visit the ministry. See more »

It had potential...it had energy and it had a pretty decent cast and to some degree a good story concept...
...but somehow the story got mangled and butchered and Hollywood execs decided that Hollywood has to be involved more than it was and hence - there goes the logic and here come the absurd explosions and illogical action sequences.
I really looked forward to seeing this because well, it was something along the lines like I am writing...I however am going 10 steps beyond this story by making mine much more realistic by not adding so many improbable and idiotic actions.
A steady movie which seems to go offtrack by making too many actions just too absurd and retarded.
So much potential and so much potential lost.
