Near the end of the film as the agents run down the stairs into Grand Central Station, Oakes shoves aside a man with an orange t-shirt, backpack, jeans and a wallet chain on his right hip. One minute later as they run down the train platform, the other agent shoves aside a man wearing a jacket and baseball cap over his orange t-shirt, jeans and wallet chain - the same guy. See more »

Although Predictable and Full of Cliches, This Funny Action Movie Entertains
In Prague, the CIA secret agent Kevin Pope (Chris Rock) is killed in a mission with Oakes (Anthony Hopkins). They were trying to recover a nuclear bomb from the hands of some mercenaries. In order to proceed with the operation, Jake Hayes (Chris Rock), twin of Kevin, is recruited by CIA to act as if he were his brother. Jake is a rascal ticker scalper and his dead brother was an exquisite man. The CIA agents have nine day to make Jake as refined as he brother was. Although having a plot very predictable and full of cliches, this movie is a funny action movie, almost a comedy. Therefore, it objective of entertainment is accomplished. My vote is seven.
