When a C.I.A. Agent is killed during a nuclear arms purchase, his partner Oakes (Sir Anthony Hopkins), recruits his twin brother, Jake Hayes (Chris Rock).

However, the enemy terrorists learn of his secret identity and kidnap his girlfriend/fiancée. He has to rescue her and save New York City from an imminent nuclear terrorist act.

Very entertaining
14 November 2002 | by tommygoat1See all my reviews

This movie was very entertaining but certainly not great. I think Chris Rock gave a great performance and Anthony Hopkins is always wonderful. The action sequences were very good, especially the camera work in the field car chase. I'm glad I didn't see it in the theater, but I'm glad I saw it just the same.
