Fairly entertaining
3 June 2011 | by actionfilm-2See all my reviews

This film is certainly nothing special, but worth watching over much of what passes for entertainment these days. Disgraced female FBI agent Lauren Jacobs (Sherilyn Fenn) takes on rogue operatives within the highest ranks of government. The film's characters act in a rational manner for the most part, and there is enough action to keep everyone on their toes, including a nicely staged foot chase. Other than Paul Winfield (as a Presedential candidate) there are not many familiar faces here. Sherilyn Fenn as the heroine does a admirable job in carrying the film, which would fit nicely as the second feature on a double bill with Eastwood's In The Line Of Fire.
