...a frustrating picture with all the ingredients to be a truly outstanding action thriller, yet never quite achieving its ambitions.

The Peacemaker is a critical reminder that nothing's quite as dynamic as fully bloomed, gung ho, widescreen descent into possible worldwide destruction.

The plot works on a mechanical level, but "The Peacemaker" reveals the Bond movies are smart to oil the cogs with humor and sex appeal.

Hops the globe like an old Bob Hope troop show in a futilely frenzied attempt to obscure script weaknesses.

First-time filmmaker Mimi Leder builds a couple of suspenseful scenes in the last half-hour, but most of the story is stale and predictable.

A solid, muscular thriller that manages to deliver big action set-pieces without insulting the audience's intelligence.
