Corpses pile up, dreadful secrets are uncovered, and Bishop eventually gets to the bottom of things, a full hour after the least attentive viewer will have figured out who's behind it all.

Bland, interminable chase scenes take up so much of the story -- the hackneyed plot doesn't need much exposition -- that the sheer repetitiveness begins to amaze you.

Sadly, Sheen doesn't even look profound. Like a zombie who's spent too much time in the gym, he blunders heavily from one stunt to the next, his pursed lips conveying nothing more than pique.

The climactic assassination attempt... is so ridiculous there's only one real danger: that the president (and the audience) will laugh to death.

The story's driven completely by coincidence and baffling lunacy, and you'll be driven... to press eject on your VCR.

The film is so contemptuous of its audience it doesn't even bother to present a surface resemblance to reality.

The whole thing is so vague and preposterous and paranoid that it almost goes without saying that Donald Sutherland plays a key role.

Sheen is a handsome and resourceful actor, but not enough so to win in this conspiracy of shadows over substance.

When Charlie Sheen and Donald Sutherland appear in any movie, you should be wary. Their contracts seem to demand nothing but corny formula.

Here, we have stereotyped villains involved in a generic, high- level conspiracy, and a couple of equally-bland heroes on the run.

There isn't a brain in its empty little head, or in its assembly-line story, which is about how Charlie Sheen pauses occasionally between ludicrous action scenes, some of them ripped off from better films.

Is it just me or is Charlie Sheen the kiss of death for anything other than Hot Shots?

This is the sort of film in which informants are shot in the head from across the street just as they are about to reveal the name of the traitor behind the scheme.

A truly pathetic thriller.
