[about the second liquid bomb in the limo]
Mr. O' Neal, what do ya have for me?
For you? I don't have shit. Now get away from me. I don't want any terrorist mistaking us for friends.
Look, I know you guys like conspiracy theories, but it is possible he acted alone.
Unlikely. Especially if he's not talking. That means he's scared.
So what are you thinking?
I'm thinking I gotta take a piss. You wanna help me?
No? That's good.

I don't want to give anything away of the content of the movie, so all I can say: I just love Pierce performance in it, the melody of the main theme, also the story of Pierce' character. Additionally, the movie is very suspenseful most of the time. I can understand why people find it's not such a good movie. Personally, 'though I know it's not the best movie ever made, I love it.
If you ask me: Give it a try! I don't think you will regret having watched it, and maybe you'll even like as much as I and some other people do.
Luckily, a DVD has been released some time ago. The DVD quality is quite good, and luckily both full and widescreen versions are included. For 4:3 TVs, I'd recommend to watch the fullscreen version as you can see more at the top and bottom.
