Storyline

When F.B.I. Agent Zack Grant's partner is killed during a blown-up operation, he attempts to find the person responsible.

The action gets wild when airline stewardess Mary is taken hostage to add what seems another insurmountable problem for Zack. There appears to be No Way Out.

Beginning of a great actor
3 September 2003 | by iwatcheverythingSee all my reviews

After watching this film I could see the great actor that Russell Crowe has become. The film although lacking a little in the story department, just needed a few added scenes, the actors were great. The comic relief was great. This film received an okay star rating from me and has good reason. You should take a look especially if you are a fan of the man now.
