Dying of brain cancer, a dangerous international spy is determined to give up his high stakes life to finally build a closer relationship with his estranged wife and daughter, whom he's previously kept at arm's length to keep out of danger; but first, he must complete one last mission - even if it means juggling the two toughest assignments yet: hunt down the world's most ruthless terrorist and look after his teenage daughter for the first time in ten years while his wife is out of town. Written by Relativity Media

Goofs

Elevators do not just drop when a cable connection is either lost or otherwise interrupted by shooting; the safety system invented by Elisha Graves Otis in 1852 locks the car in place and prevents it from falling. See more »

Ugh

How in the world did this movie get green lighted??? Like most modern movies made today, this is just as bad as most of them. The plot doesn't make sense, nor the acting. But worse are the improbabilities. At least TRY to make a movie of this ilk somewhat believable. I guess this is what they call a fantasy, science fiction type movie....but it doesn't work.

Despite all the gun shooting everywhere and the typical car chases, WHERE ARE THE POLICE?? Despite all the punches, falls and cars going over bridges and landing upside down, TWO BAD GUYS GET UP AND RUN TO THE METRO TO CATCH THE KEVIN COSTNER CHARACTER. What? Keven himself gets all punched, bruised and beaten, yet in the next scene, THE SAME NIGHT, two of them are dressed up and not a scratch or buries on them!!! WHAT? If this were a cartoon, maybe, but this is supposed to be realistic. Or as I stated above, a fantasy. Then it would work, although I don't think this was meant to be a sic-fi or fantasy. I really don't know what the writers had in mind for this miss-mash. Even the acting suffers, but of course since the actors have nothing to act.

Why can't more movies be made like a good old fashion thriller like Hitchcock used to make or a good Agatha Christie movie. I guess movies like that are passé'...what a pity.
