Well what did you expect!!!By I Shot JR! from Plymouth, England , 14 May 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I won't hear any complaints by watchers of this film! Unless you were born yesterday, you know what to expect before you hire it, which is of course, no-brains action and knuckle-head machismo. But isn't that the point? Sometimes we need some testosterone-pumping drivel to watch and not have to think about. Well, it made me feel better anyway and if this film had turned out to be touching and sensitive I think I would be feeling pretty cheated right now! As it is, this bog-standard action movie, lacking in plot and substance (think Top Gun for the 'noughties' but not as good!), leaves me feeling recharged and ready to begin watching and appreciating some meaningful and hopefully original material again (at least until Paycheck or the next Jackie Chan movie!). These money-spinners will continue to be made and will continue to put (boys') bums on seats, maintaining the equilibrium currently threatened by the overwhelming amount of wishy-washy chick flicks available. Just watch and enjoy it for what it is or don't bother!

Definately averageBy a customer from Troon, UK. , 12 Mar 2007Stunts are well done but the plot and story are very weak. A distinctly average action film.
So bad you might think it's a spoof movieBy Thomas Williams from London, England , 11 Nov 2006The usual Hollywood nonsense. Lots of shouting and macho behaviour. Very little in the way of a plot, you can guess what happens in the first 10 minutes. This also has to be perhaps the gayist most homoerotic movie since Top Gun. I don't know if it was intentional because if felt like it was bordering on a spoof movie. At least it provided some laughs!
OK FilmBy a customer from England , 06 Nov 2006Plenty of American can do action with the stars and stripes fluttering in the background. Not a bad film.
Not too badBy a customer from Bath, England , 13 Oct 2006Not bad f you want an action movie with an easy plot to follow and with all the usual one liners. However, if you're looking for an on-the-edge-of-your-seat action thriller with an exciting story line then you should look elsewhere.
S-What?By a customer from Surrey , 22 Aug 2006Leave your brain in another room for this over the top cheese fest of a movie.
If you add up all the macho one-liners and cheesey good-guy, bad-guy lip action you could traverse the circumference of the world twice, and still have enough to top off a supersize pizza!
Ridiculous scripts, ridiculous plots and ridiculous camera work all add up to another great testorone filled action movie.
Miss it if you want, but for a friday night in with the lads - you should definitely add it to your must see list - right under Porkies!
