Storyline

When the president of Russia suddenly dies, a man whose politics are virtually unknown succeeds him. The change in political leaders sparks paranoia among American CIA officials, so CIA director Bill Cabot recruits a young analyst to supply insight and advice on the situation. Then the unthinkable happens: a nuclear bomb explodes in a U.S. city, and America is quick to blame the Russians. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Did You Know?

Trivia

The spray can that Liev Schreiber uses to cut through the chain-link fence is supposed to be a real-life CIA chemical spray known as "Ice Piss". When asked if a real can of Ice Piss could be acquired for the scene, the technical advisor said "I don't want to go to prison!" See more »

Goofs

After the nuclear detonation, Ryan was using cellular phones. The electromagnetic pulse (EMP) generated by a nuclear blast would have disabled any electronic circuit that was active in the blast radius at the time of detonation, rendering all communications, including cellular phones, inoperable.

what the hell were they thinking?
8 July 2003 | by cgeorgencaspSee all my reviews

Hey, at least the people who made the movie at least had some of the same names that the people were in the book, because that is the only thing that even comes close to being like it. I hope you know how to read, because if you don't, and you watch this movie, you're going to be in for some serious disappointment.
