A thrilling movie...
25 October 1999 | by SingarySee all my reviews

I can't say enough good things about this movie, or the stand out performances by Tom Berenger and Clancy Brown.

This movie keeps you literally glued to your set, and catches you up on the intrigue and excitement of the CIA and the kinds of things they do to keep our national security safe.

Tom Berenger is cast perfectly as Kevin Jefferson. He is morally strong and determined in what he believes in. Berenger deserves these kinds of roles more often...and in these top notch kind of productions.

Clancy Brown, known more as a character bad guy, deserves much more attention from now on in Hollywood after showing this much different side of his acting.

Strong acting, great ensemble cast, first rate writing and directing.
