It fails completely in the excitement area.
This also reminds me of that sci/fi movie with Mick Jagger and Emilio Stevez. Another cinematic disaster that you just can't believe hollywood dared to make.
Denzel hits it right on the nose once again proving that he can still be suave and sophisticated even while playing a disgraced cop who's fueled with revenge over the death of his wife and kid at the hands of a political terrorist who's personality now resides in Sid. Seeing a chance for redemption as well as payback when the LETEC prison system makes him an offer he can't refuse, Parker takes up the task of hunting down Sid and blowing him to bits any way he can.
Now, the stage is set and the chase is on as the game of cat-and-mouse between these two adversaries gets more extreme...only in this game, there's no 'save' or 'reset' button! Definitely an adrenaline action flick you don't wanna miss!
