  • A well-constructed and genuinely tense thriller. show more

  • Director Clark Johnson has an energetic style of filmmaking and a facile way with stunts and chase sequences. The result is a fairly stylish action thriller. We've seen plenty of suspense films in which a seemingly good guy is framed, so it helps when a director can pull off a few cinematic tricks to keep audiences on their toes. show more

  • I can't find much slack to cut the film, except to say that it's a potboiler cooked in an upscale Teflon pot. show more
