Seagal's best movie - due largely in part to the fact that he's barely in it.

A dishearteningly jingoistic thriller, saved by sharp action scenes and a few decent surprises.

Russell plays this role very well, relying more on his intellectual image than muscles in the same manner as his character who uses more brain and less physical power to achieve his task.

The great thing about the movie is that, although it's ludicrously predictable along the lines of every 'Die Hard on a [name your vehicle],' the filmmakers still manage to wring every scene for the most thrills possible.

It seems to bring up more questions than could possibly be answered in a two-hour movie, but all of the pieces start to fall into place as the movie picks up speed.

A movie for people who are sophisticated enough to know how shameless the film is, but fun-loving enough to enjoy its excesses and manic zeal.
