It's just a terribly acted movie.
8 September 2005 | by qriz976See all my reviews

OK, I don't hate Snipes or action movies... But this movie is really just crap. The counter players of Snipes (especially his teammates) should be special forces of some kind, but they act as if they just got off college and don't have a clue what they should be doing (even the captain). Snipes seems to be the only capable man and that's just not enough to make a good movie. The only thing that should be good in a movie, acting by professional actors, just is NOT.

So that's why I hated this movie, it's just too lame. Maybe they didn't invest enough time in EVERYTHING.

I don't really want to make more lines dirty and invest more time in reviewing this movie, but I have to because of the possibility of actually posting this. So if you want a good movie, go watch Fight Club or the James Bond series or something like the new Batman Begins. But leave this movie alone. It would be a waste of your time if you are a critical movie watcher. (maybe you just have to be stoned or drunk with some mates to enjoy this movie, or you just have to love terrible movies)
