Goofs

At the end of the movie McNeil jumps onto a small plane using the same magnetic gloves he used at the beginning of the film. Smaller aircrafts are made out of aluminum and he should only have stuck to areas of the plane that had frame, and not the entire length of the outside panel. See more »

Not all bad
26 December 2004 | by SmishSee all my reviews

OK.. I'll admit, it's not exactly Oscar worthy, but I thought this film was a great escape for an hour and a half! The plot was fairly predictable, but I tend to have a soft spot for cheesy films, especially cheesy action films, so that didn't bother me...

Steve Guttenberg is unfortunately unconvincing as an action hero, and for me personally, there were a few too many shots of him bare chested! Torri Higginson acted her socks off (as always) and her, and the rest of the cast, did an amazing job in salvaging the film from being a turkey... If the supporting cast hadn't been as strong, this film could have ended up being fairly unbearable.

If you go to watch this film expecting a work of genius, you'll be sorely disappointed... If you take it a face value (i.e. as a good old fashioned mindless action flick) you'll enjoy it...
