Decent, but you have seen it a million times before
11 March 2003 | by Cyber256702000See all my reviews

When a military experiment on a biological bomb goes wrong Col. Brynner ends up with a ten year prison sentence. Now ten years later Brynner is out and ready to get revenge on the people who imprisoned him, by killing the creator of the bomb and selling the bomb to the highest bidder. The only people who can save the world are Mason, a nightshift convenience store clerk, and Arlo, an ice cream delivery man. The catch is the bomb will explode when it hits 50 degrees, so the guys decide to use Arlo's ice cream truck to transport the bomb to the nearest army base, while Brynner's men try to get the bomb back. Lots of action, and pretty fun. Gooding and Ulrich make a great pair. The biggest problems are there is really nothing in this that you haven't seen before, and the fact that the bad guy is so uninspired and dull that he is just boring to watch. Still, the ice cream truck idea is pretty cool. ** out of ****
