The screenplay may be credited to Michael Schiffer, but the punchy dialogue has Quentin Tarantino written all over it. The cast has a ball.

What the film lacks in slam-bang action it more than makes up for in sheer suspense.

It's great to see a high-tech thriller that thrills because of its actors, not its special effects.

Isn't there something awfully satisfying about the throbbing missiles and cathartic explosions that constitute this film's main excitement? Maybe so, but nothing else here delivers a comparable thrill.

The ending of the film is a bit of a letdown, but the balance of the film is both thought-provoking and suspenseful.

Nope, this picture doesn't bear thinking about, but, if you resist that nasty temptation, setting all your mental gauges at Dead Slow, the flow of the action will see you through.
