This minor action film aims higher than most, causing it to fail more obviously. The script poses a vast conspiracy that is supposed to give the story some importance, but is very poorly developed and resolved.
Most annoying to me was the haphazard construction of the story arc and its hanging plot threads, as badly handled as I've seen in ages. The two main characters: cop Flanery and Amazonian FBI agent Loken are dropped from a long stretch that focuses on the political subplot and bad guy, then reinserted for action sequences. Then near the end the star Flanery is lost completely with no explanation as the film's continuity deteriorates miserably. Tacked on ending focusing on Loken for the usual "sequelitis" prospect of a follow-up feature betrays a possibly unfinished film project here, also hinted at by the placement of the director credit mid-way through opening credits, and listing as a director the IMDb-listed second unit director Jeffrey Robinson.
