standard cop verses mad killer thriller
29 June 2002 | by jaybobSee all my reviews

Lou Diamond Phillips & an actor I never heard of turn in decent, but unremarkable performances in this routine thriller, Lots of car chases & crashes etc. nothing new or different, BUT it is acted & produced competently.

rating **1/2 72/100 IMDb 6
