Storyline

When a CIA agent is killed during a nuclear arms purchase, his partner Oakes, recruits his twin brother, Jake Hayes. Jake had no idea he had a twin brother, let alone that he worked for the CIA.

He has to rescue them and save New York city from an imminent nuclear terrorist act. Written by Mikey J. <mredding@ev1.net>

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.
