ONE OF THE BEST ACTION, SUSPENSE FILMS EVER DONE
Verified purchase
NO SPOILERS. HAVING WATCHED THIS FILM SEVERAL TIMES, IT IS ONE OF THE BEST OF THE THRILLER, ACTION GENRE, BUT WITH
A SOPHISTICATED PLOT. MR. SNIPES IS AT HIS FINEST, AS HE PLAYS A USA HIGHLY SECRET ASSASSIN ON A MISSION TO ELIMINATE
A HEINOUS TERRORIST. AFTER THE ATTEMPT, EVERY THING GOES WRONG AND HE IS ON THE RUN. BUT THOSE WISHING HIS DEMISE ARE HIS OWN PEOPLE WHO CONCEIVED THE PLOT AGAINST THEIR AGENCY ORDERS. WHILE ATTEMPTING TO HIDE, AN
OLDER TEEN GIRL, OUT OF COMPASSIONATE INTUITION, DECIDES TO ASSIST HIM. THERE ARE MANY TWISTS AND TURNS, WHILE
ALL OF THE POLICE HAVE AN ORDER OF SHOOT TO KILL. I WILL NOT TELL MORE BUT THE FINAL DENOUEMENT IS THRILLING AND
THE FINALE IS ACTUALLY HEARTWARMING, AS MR. SNIPES RETURNS THE KINDNESS TO THE TEEN WHO SAVED HIS LIFE. A
TERRIFIC ACTION FILM WITH GRAVITAS AND A COGNITIVE PLOT LINE. SOMETIMES THE FILMS THAT ARE A FEW YEARS OLDER ARE ACTUALLY THE BEST.

Liked movie, cast, acting.

The plot was intricate, exciting; liked everything except it never showed the girl handing the ingo over to the detective as Snipes's character asked. Was that a thread dropped? I like plots where all the threads are followed through on.

a child helps a federal agent escape and hid away , from his corrupt government agency , who is trying to murder him. can children be this wise. she says she is a liar and she knows when someone is not a liar. but, a little girl helping a 40 something year old man would be frowned upon , and the man would be afraid to take help from a little girl, also.

Great action and credible plot

I’m a big fan of Wesley Snipes and I added this movie to my collection. You’ll recognize several British actors. Even the youngest actress in the movie is top notch. I love the ending.

Really bad movie. Reminds me of the later Steven Segal flicks. Took me three times to watch till the end with no reward for the time spent. Can't believe the actors would agree to do this.

I actually enjoyed watching this movie. I honestly believe this is one of Wesley Snipe's better movies. I will definitely watch again. Action is good along with the plot.
