Movie Info

Two trains collide in rural Russia, one of them housing nuclear weapons that go missing after the wreck, and the U.S. government is alerted. Nuclear specialist Dr. Julia Kelly (Nicole Kidman) believes that there will soon be a terrorist attack, so Lt. Col. Thomas Devoe (George Clooney) joins Dr. Kelly as they try to track down the warhead-stealing culprits. They learn that Yugoslav terrorist Gavrich (Marcel Iures) has his hands on the weapons, and he's plotting a devastating attack on New York.

Audience Reviews for The Peacemaker

    Outside of the unusual consideration given to the villain's perspective, there really isn't much of note here. Leder's a competent enough director to keep the movie mostly watchable, but it's just such a bland screenplay.

    interesting film but just poorly paced. the film is just missing depth and the villain of the film isn't menacing. the real villains are dealt an unfair depature half way through the film. kidman is miscast and clooney while a good actor just can't overcome a clunky script. good for a night in but don't look for repeat viewings

    Pretty cool. Normally, I really hate George Clooney in anything, and I'm not partial to Nicole Kidman either, but they're both pretty good in this. One thing that gets The Peacemaker points in my opinion is the main antagonist. The guy plans to nuke major cities, but by the film's end, you actually find yourself sympathizing with him for what he's been through. Feeling this kind of empathy for a villain is often quite rare, though it's frequently attempted. Aside from this, all I can say is, The Peacemaker is probably worth your time...there's not much else noteworthy about it, but there's not much wrong with it, either.

    The plot is nothing new. Some terrorists decides that New York must be eradicated to teach America a lesson so they steal some nukes and one of them (a revenge-obsessed Bosnian suicide bomber ) tries to set one off in NYC. Enter Dr Julia Kelly (Nicole Kidman) and Col. Tom Devoe (George Clooney). Kelly is a spunky US presidential advisor - attractive, smart and courageous - but one who has never seen combat or watched someone die. Devoe is a battle-hardened veteran. There is inevitable conflict between Kelly and Devoe but mercifully no romance between the two, who are in any case too busy saving the world from a nuclear bomb to get physical. The movie fails to satisfy due to many holes and non-credible series of events. Major Spoiler: I can't believe a nuke weapon will make it through international customs just because it was in a box marked "Diplomatic papers - Confidential". Then right at the end of the movie, why does the terrorist blow his brains out two minutes before the nuke goes off? That gives our heroes a few minutes to disarm the bomb!!!! Wouldn't he keep talking to push through those two minutes?
