| Well constructed, fun ride
An oldie but a goodie.

I hadn't seen this movie for a good many years. Made back when Douglas was in his acting prime.

It moves at a steady pace with good flow. The surprises are plentiful given the basic premise.

Considering the lack of CGI and the effort in the script I wonder if we will see anything of its type come out of studios in more modern times?

Let's hope to see a movie of similar calibre some time soon.
