The Operative (2000)
User ReviewsReview this title
Beginning credits were cool. Then when it starts you're hit with a sex scene, which made me suspicious as to the quality of the rest of the movie (since you know a movie is bad when they revert to good old fashioned sex to grab your attention). But my suspicions were wrong.
The Russian guy "Gregor" looked like a buff, steroided up version of Bobby DeNiro (cool!). Basil looks like Larry Drake. Moments of pure Desperado-like violence. The music is successfully folded in. Could I also say that the guy who wrote this has been watching WAY too many Smokey & the Bandit movies.
The Operative: cheap, but entertaining.
If you like action, interesting characters and some unexpected comedy with a sensitive sub-plot, then you should enjoy "The Operative". Sports fans will be impressed with Brian Bosworth's portrayal of more than a couple of characters. Congrats on a low-budget movie with big-budget appeal!
